Each year, WIDA hosts what they call “A conference by teachers for teachers,” designed for educators of pre-K–12 multilingual learners. Educators from around the globe gather to network, share best practices, and discover innovative classroom strategies. Reviewed and selected by a panel of experts in the field of multilingual education, all hour and 15-minute sessions are conceived and led by fellow teachers. This year’s three keynote speakers were Dr. Sonia Nieto, Professor Emerita of Language, Literacy, and Culture; Senior Scientist Margaret Heritage; and Author/Poet José Olivarez.

Nazgol and Tiffany welcomed many potential candidates at the SEARCH table in Exhibitors Hall.
