More than a language.
Joining us this week is Jenna Vislisel. Jenna is a bilingual educator, blogger, and mom! She is passionate about bringing languages and bi-literacy to the classroom. She believes that language is more than just communication, it encompasses culture, heritage, and identity as well. Diversity should be celebrated in the classroom and students encouraged to share their experiences and unique identities.
Jenna is currently a stay-at-home mom, sharing her passion for bilingualism on her blog Bilingual Balance. Parents and teachers can access her resources like printable activities, tips, and strategies for teaching and practicing languages. Jenna focuses on Spanish, but her methods can be useful for general language learning.
“Bilingualism and multilingualism is a gift.”
Listen to hear why bilingualism is so important to integrate into schools.
