Conferences for Bilingual Teachers in the US

Conferences for Bilingual Teachers in the US

How do you stay connected with other bilingual/dual language educators? How do you share your knowledge and learn about new practices? Social media is great, but nothing compares to actually meeting and connecting face to face with other educators. Usually, when I find out about these conferences it's either too late to register or too late to attend so I promise I will attend the following year, the funny thing is, the same thing happens every year. If you are like me, let's start 2018 a bit different!   

      This is a list of conferences happening in 2018 for bilingual/dual language teachers around the United States.
