For too long English-only policies within international schools have upheld colonial ideals. As educators, we have the responsibility to disrupt harm within systems and build more loving, nurturing spaces where our students can be their authentic selves.
We have the opportunity to cultivate dynamic multilingual ecosystems within our classes, through the open-hearted and strategic use of translanguaging. This March I will be traveling to Nairobi, Kenya to facilitate a two day workshop on translanguaging.This interactive workshop will explore the dynamic translanguaging practices of our students, as well as the pedagogy to foster multilingual ecosystems within our classes where all our students can thrive.
The aim of this event is to create a community of practitioners dedicated to linguistic equity as they learn how to cultivate dynamics multilingual classroom ecosystem with translanguaging pedagogies.

I'm so excited to share this with the world. It was so much fun working with MiniPD to develop these courses. Are you looking to help deepen your practice to best serve multilingual students? These courses are one hour each, self paced, and affordable. I'd love to hear about how your learning transfers to your practice and students' success.
I am delighted to share that I am continuing to partner with MiniPd. I am developing two asynchronous courses as part of a larger subscription bundle. These courses will explore the multilingual mindsets and content language integrated learning. The courses are about an hour of contact time each, with lots of resources and opportunities to extend your learning.
I continue to be inspired by my work with MiniPD. Their model of responsive and affordable high quality professional learning is energizing! Stay tuned!
