“I have been fortunate to have worked with the IRC for more than 10 years! I started as a student taking my ESL/Bilingual endorsement courses and attending critical professional development sessions to support my Dual Language teaching career. Now, as the Director of Multilingual Programs for District 59, I have been able to gain a more global perspective on how this organization positively impacts school districts and the field of education as a whole.”
