DLeNM Staff Openings Print E-mail

DLeNM’s Resource Development Team is looking for two new staff people! 

DLeNM is expanding its resource development team.  Job applications now being accepted for 1) Materials Development Coordinator, and 2) Information Technology Person (Web Developer). LINK to Career Page

The DLeNM Clearinghouse was begun in 2007 to identify, develop and share resources to support the dual language community across the United States and the professional development work of DLeNM. 

Dee McMann began providing new resources through the DLeNM Clearinghouse in 2007. In addition to the clearinghouse, Dee’s leadership has led to the establishment of Fuente Press. Through close collaboration with DLeNM staff, board, and a growing community of dual language educators, Fuente Press now provides these resources through a quarterly newsletter Soleado, a monthly e-newsletter Fuente, professional development books, instructional training monographs, and a dual language clearinghouse (www.dlenm.org) with a growing, on-demand, on-line professional development platform – FUENTE365.

These two new staff members will collaborate with a resource development team that includes a video production coordinator, a development director, and DLeNM’s leadership team. New staff must have an educator’s perspective, be committed to supporting emerging bilingual students, and be visionary leaders committed to the mission of DLeNM.

If interested in either of these positions, please go to: Career Page
