“I am a kindergarten bilingual educator.  Spanish being my first language, I think it is very important that students get that equal opportunity to learn both languages.” – Amparo Garza, Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD

“Being a bilingual teacher, for me, is about building bridges between two cultures.” – Sergio Ramos, Austin ISD

This week, we once again had the opportunity to celebrate the contributions of bilingual educators at the National Association for Bilingual Education (NABE) in Dallas, Texas.  We also recognized five bilingual education leaders selected by their communities and peers as the best of the best. Amparo Garza and Sergio Ramos received the most votes as outstanding bilingual educators — and we could not be prouder.

¡Felicidades Amparo y Sergio!

Their passion, commitment, and energy speaks to what we saw from the more than 2,000 attendees who share in our mission.  We want to congratulate NABE for hosting a successful conference with dozens of interesting panels and sessions.  We are proud to be a part of the NABE family and look forward to continuing to work together.

Watch us reveal our top five Outstanding Bilingual Teacher Awards in this Facebook Live.

All winners receive one year of Genius Plaza teaching resources.

Additionally, second and third places receive a premium virtual reality headset.

First place receives a Kindle and sponsorship to CABE, the annual conference of the California Association for Bilingual Education.

Thank you for voting!
