Two New DLTL Cohorts Launch Summer 2020

Despite challenges presented by Covid-19, two new Dual Language Teacher Leadership graduate cohorts launched this Summer. Classes that were to be held on the Schaumburg and Chicago campuses were offered remotely; enabling students to safely participate in their first semester of coursework. Courses were expertly led by Dr. Erin Mackinney, Dr. Allison Slade, Jennifer Langer and Adelina Rivera.

Kudos to our determined students and instructors who flexibly navigated these unique circumstances!

DLTL Alum – Featured in Roosevelt Review

Jessica Fong, ’18 | Dual Language Leaders

DLTL 2018 Graduate, Jessica Fong is featured in the current issue of the Roosevelt Review.

In it, she talks about the need for dual language teachers and leaders to foster bilingualism in the next generation.   Jessica is a teacher, wife, mother, leader, and is currently pursuing her principal endorsement in the DLTL Principal Pathway – a unique program that offers DLTL graduates the opportunity to build on the DLTL teacher leader standards and qualify for the principal endorsement in only 3 semesters.

As an administrator, Jessica wants to speak her families’ language — not just Spanish, but their culture and their neighborhood. Now more than ever, childhood education needs both innovation and inclusion to meet diverse student needs.

“I think the biggest piece was creating that dual language community among ourselves. At the end, we were like a family.”  —Jessica Fong (MA DLTL, ’18)
