Confidently lead a class

As Dr. Vanessa Mari notes in her recent editorial: "The Clark County School District is developing dual language bilingual schools. The ELL Master Plan published by the district shows the different types of models that will be implemented to benefit different student populations. To prepare future teachers to work in these bilingual schools, the faculty at Nevada State College developed a bilingual endorsement which will start in Fall 2019. As the only bilingual endorsement opportunity for teachers in the valley, Nevada State College strives to prepare holistic educators to not only teach in both languages, but also build on students’ background and experiences."
