Does our teaching profession reflect the diversity of our learners? Tap ACTFL initiatives and resources to bring in, develop, and nurture current and future language educators. The pipeline begins with encouraging a more diverse group of learners (such as students achieving the Seal of Biliteracy) and supporting heritage/native speakers to explore teaching as a career. Identify ways to support candidates on the path to certification. Share strategies to continuously develop educators by honing their teaching and leadership skills. Mentoring – including virtual coaching, professional learning communities, and ACTFL’s programs – is critical at each stage of the pipeline. Explore the challenges and collaborate to shape actions to take locally (as an individual, institution, or organization).
