Conference Program Draft

This year’s planning committee looks forward to seeing you in Santa Fe this November 19th – 22nd, where we will share our experience, network, and celebrate the best of our multilingual/multicultural community!

La Cosecha began in 1996 with 80 teachers who recognized a need to network and share identified best practices within the dual language community.  La Cosecha 2014 will bring together over 2,000 participants from throughout the U.S. representing two-way immersion, one-way developmental bilingual, and one-way heritage language immersion programs
