Strand I

Leadership Strand – Integrative Leadership Development for Caring World Language Educators

Are you ready for the next step in your professional journey? Our profession needs leaders who are able to act with clarity and wisdom as they grow in their own leadership capacity. The Integrative Leadership Development (ILD) strand will enable participants to become effective learning coaches, mentors, and innovators in our profession. The ILD model empowers educational leaders to thrive and centers the wellness of teachers and students. Grounded in cutting-edge research, this professional learning increases the effectiveness of educators and demonstrates the connection between social emotional wellness and the California World Languages Standards and Framework. As an integral component of this strand, participants will learn to meditate.  

Acceptance into the Leadership Strand is contingent  upon an interview. If you are not accepted, you will be offered a spot in another summer seminar strand, if available.
