This conference meets the needs of ALL teachers, administrators, and support staff.

Teachers, administrators, and support staff will learn effective strategies from members of their same program or from a different program! Educational "Silos" are no longer viable.

Featured Speaker

February 27, 2021

Dr. Richard Gómez Jr.

The Gomez and Gomez Dual Language Enrichment Model was developed by Dr. Richard Gómez and Dr. Leo Gómez in 1995.  The Gómez brothers are retired professors in Bilingual Education. Their published research focused on implementing effective language and academic strategies in two languages. They have spent over 25 years, constantly evaluating and perfecting their dual-language education model which is now implemented in over 900 schools across the country.  

In 2015, Dr. Richard Gómez founded G&G Dual Language Consultants, LLC and along with select experts in bilingual education continues to offer training and services to implement the Gomez and Gomez DLE Model effectively.  G&G Dual Language Consultants is committed to helping school districts interested in educating their students in one-way or two-way dual-language programs to create the best possible learning environment to ensure their students' academic and linguistic success.  Furthermore, Dr. Gómez has trained thousands of general education teachers in educational Best Practices resulting in high academic achievement for both English Learners (ELs) and non-ELs. 

 

Today, the innovation continues as we move forward launching dual language education into homes across the globe!
