Who?      All K-8 teachers of World and Classical Languages

A gathering to celebrate FLES teaching with activities that include:
  • A keynote speaker: Marissa Coulehan, elementary Spanish teacher and language leader!
  • Job-alike group chats to share ideas in language-specific and grade-level cohorts.
  • Exhibitors with FLES materials for you to peruse and a raffle of some great materials.
  • Lesson/activity swap (NEW this year: please upload a fantastic task, resource, lesson or activity to our shared folder prior to coming to the event; this folder will be available to all participants and provide a space for sharing of our best activities!)
Where?    The Dalton School, 108 E 89th Street (between Park and Lexington Avenues), NYC

This celebration is in honor of the late Dr. Mari Haas, extraordinary FLES teacher, teacher trainer, workshop presenter, author, mother and friend. Through her materials, conference presentations, summer institutes, and by her example, Mari encouraged us to bring culture into the FLES classroom, to be playful in our teaching, and to be passionate about the important work we do in bringing the love of languages to young children.

Talk with Bill Van Patten
