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

Scoop It! Print E-mail

Dual language education and the instruction of emerging bilingual students are matters receiving unprecedented attention from the press and media both in the United States and internationally.  To help you keep up with all the publicity, DLeNM has created five “Scoop It” topics which contain links to news stories and broadcast covering:

·         Benefits of Bilingualism
·         Dual Language Education Challenges and Opportunities
·         Dual Language Education in the United States
·         Language Education Outside the U.S.
·         Language Education: Major Papers and Reports

While these categories of information are necessarily arbitrary and subjective, the information provided through “Scoop It” helps DLeNM members follow what the public is reading and hearing about their work and their students.  

DLeNM Scoop It! is curated by James Lyons, Esq.—policy attorney, analyst, advocate, and activist.
