Innovations in Education Event – Bilingual and International Schools: Building the Power of Diversity

Innovations in Education Event – Bilingual and International Schools: Building the Power of Diversity

Throughout the country bilingual and international schools are being created to meet the need of the diverse populations that they serve. This trend signals an approach to diversity in which people focus on the power and the enrichment that diversity adds to the community. Bilingual and International schools operate from a strength rather than deficit model.  These schools provide an opportunity for English speaking students to learn another language and experience a global learning environment.

To add to the already rich conversation around this hot topic, City University is hosting their second Innovations in Education event on April 11 and welcoming speaker, Jesely Alvarez. Jesely is the principal of the John Stanford International School based in Seattle, has over eight years of international school experience; and has a background in multicultural education, ELL, literacy, and global action. In addition to being a Fulbright alumni, she was featured by the George Lucas Educational Foundation and has received a School Nomination as a “Changemaker School” by the ASHOKA foundation. She is incredibly passionate about this topic and recently published  a paper titled,  International Schools-Preparing Students for Global Competency, Differently in Washington Principal (page 29).

Join Jesely Alvarez, CityU, alumni, students, faculty, and our community as we talk about bilingual and international schools on April 11th at CityU’s Seattle campus at 6:30 p.m. Register by going HERE.
