Learn about the people of WIDA

WIDA's diverse staff hail from around the world to around the corner. A number of our researchers and developers are nationally known experts in the fields of language development, education policy and psychometrics. Many of our professional staff are former teachers themselves, or have personal or career backgrounds in language arts or linguistics. What all WIDA staff have in common is a shared commitment to social justice for linguistically and culturally diverse children.
