This fall SEAL offered two interactive workshops for educators, families and community partners at the 28th Annual La Cosecha Dual Language Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The four-day event was themed “Honoring Our Story: Reclaiming Our Past Through Empowerment and Action.” 

SEAL partner Dual Language Education of New Mexico hosted this national conference that helps drive our work, keeps us abreast of the latest research developments, and sparks valuable networking opportunities. We’re honored to have been among 235+ professional presentations and workshops designed to support dual language education.
