The Light at the End of the Tunnel
The final weeks of the academic year are approaching and many schools around the world prepare to celebrate a job well done. The end of the school year brings familiar rituals and many emotions for students, parents and teachers. As educators, we are well acquainted with these significant moments to mark the end of the year: submitting final grades, saying farewells to colleagues, offering congratulations to graduates and sharing summer plans.
At WIDA we are already getting excited about the coming 2019-2020 academic year. We are looking forward to hosting a number of international educators at the Summer Institute in Madison, Wisconsin. We continue to update our resources and look forward to sharing new tools with educators in the next year. We will also attend a number of new conferences and welcome the opportunity to collaborate with partner organizations around the world. We have new colleagues joining the international team to contribute to our support for a growing, global network of schools. As you can see, there is a lot to look forward to next year!
For now, we wish you safe journeys as you head towards the light at the end of the tunnel: celebrating growth, packing up classrooms and crying at graduations. We appreciate your continued support for multilingual learners.
Best wishes for a well-deserved rest over the next two months,
