    "K.E.Y.S. to Cultural Proficiency:  Unlocking the Language of Equitable Instruction"

    Keynote Speakers:

    Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings

    and

    Dr. Danny Brassell

    The Heart of the Matter

    Someone once said, “People like to be celebrated and not tolerated.”  This is true of multilingual and multicultural populations.  What is lamentable is that some tolerate, marginalize, and alienate members of those multilingual and multicultural populations.  This is a reality that adversely affects education, commerce, and international relations.  Culturally proficient leaders are advocates for their multilingual and multicultural populations.  To fulfill this role, leaders, including educators, must be transparent in their personal reflections.  They should examine their existence in their communities, decide to be responsive to their constituents, and become agents of change. 

    Contemplation, Communication, & Collaboration

    The 2017 GATESOL Annual Conference, “Keys to Cultural Proficiency: Unlocking the Language of Equitable Instruction,” will address these issues and so many more!  Our English Learners are valuable assets in our educational organizations and communities.  GATESOL advocates for those English Learners and their educators and seeks to establish and maintain partnerships with all organizations supporting our mission.  We look forward to welcoming our Keynote Speakers, Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings and Dr. Danny Brassell, and other vital community leaders who play monumental roles in empowering and educating English Learners and other multilingual and multicultural populations!  If you want to be a part in finding out what can be done to provide equal access to education of English Learners and their families and to engage stakeholders of all facets of our society, make plans to join us in Macon, Georgia, October 19-20, 2017, for GATESOL’s Annual Conference!

    Breakfast, Lunch, and Snacks on both days are included!

    Let's get the conversation started!

    We look forward to seeing you!
