La información en esta pájina representa recursos para padres y maestros.


These are links to webpages and documents related to Bilingual Education and Bilingual Special Education.  I have included them as resources for Bilingual Teachers and parents who want their children to become bilingual.

I have dedicated my teaching career to helping students become bilingual, biliterate, bicultural, and bicognitive so that they could reach the highest levels of bilingualism and academic proficiencies.

I highly recommend the two-way bilingual immersion [dual language] and heritage immersion programs.  Purchase and view the video "Speaking in Tongues" to learn more about 4 students in dual language programs  in San Francisco.

Encourage your school district to award the Seal of Biliteracy to graduating seniors who have met the criteria demonstrating high proficiencies in two languages. According to Jack O'Connell [California State Superintendent of Public Education], 34 school districts are "implementing the Seal of Biliteracy, a Californians Together statewide program." 12/27/2010

Madera Seniors Receive the Seal of Biliteracy [June 2012]


For those of you who live in the San Joaquin Valley, Yolanda and I would be honored to meet with you and your colleagues to view the Speaking in Tongues video and to discuss the Seal of Biliteracy award.
