About the Presenter

What changes is it undergoing? How does it connect to identity and to promoting social justice? Her advocacy for the value of education in two languages for all U.S. children was the focus of her 2013 TEDx talk “No Child Left Monolingual.” She has authored and edited over twelve books, including El español de los Estados Unidos, Heritage Language Teaching: Research and Practice, Language and Identity in a Dual Immersion School and Conversaciones escritas.
