Southern New England Regional Conference for Dual Language Programs

The purpose of this conference is to create the opportunity for dual language educators to network and collaborate, increase our professional development, share instructional methods that promote bilingualism and multiculturalism, disseminate current research, and learn new ways to reach out to families and communities.  This conference is a wonderful example of building relationships with colleagues in the field of dual language education throughout the region to address our common goals.
