Here’s what your teaching colleagues say about the World Language Teacher Summit:

"I felt encouraged in growth and new strategies"

It was really helpful and I enjoyed the format a lot. Even with 15 years of experience, I felt encouraged in growth and new strategies. I wish that all of my colleagues would have taken advantage of this opportunity.

ERIN // Spanish 1, 3 pre aP & 5

"I was able to instantly use what I learned into my lessons the next day"

I enjoyed all the presentations during that week. The best part is that I was able to instantly use what I learned into my lessons the next day. Thank you.

VICENTE // Middle School Teacher

"There were so many topics that were relevant to what I do"

I absolutely LOVED this summit!!! I would get up early and stay up late binge-watching presentations. There were so many topics that were relevant to what I do, which is not always the case as an elementary teacher. I loved how I could pick and choose topics.

Discover innovative techniques to REJUVENATE your teaching and connect with your students DURING 5 Days Of Teaching TRANSFORMATION


THE Power of stories

MONDAY, OCTOBER 18TH

Join us for Day 1 of this year's WLTS to dive into a powerful engagement tool: stories. From ancient legends to modern blogs, listen to our presenters walk through ways to create stories, interpret stories, and manipulate stories all in the service of language learning. Motivate students through beginning, middle, and end -- we're sure you'll be glued to the screen with all these sessions have to offer!

Inclusion Through Windows & Mirrors

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 19TH

Tuesday brings all students to the forefront. As teachers of language and culture, it is crucial to tune into the macro and micro cultures inside our walls and outside. By offering mirrors (reflections of students in the curriculum) and windows (views into other peoples' experiences), we nurture a respectful classroom where all students feel included and welcomed.

For days that need to shine

wednesday, OCTOBER 20TH

Wednesday is hump day and sometimes needs a little extra boost. We could all use a little extra shine in some of those lessons, so today's presenters spotlight new ideas, tasks, or tools to use with your students. While maybe this could be quickly enveloped into your units, keep yourself open to how a single element of one of these presentations could inspire bigger change.

Twisting the Nuts & Bolts

thursday, OCTOBER 21st

The nitty-gritty of teaching can draw us into the minutia of a missing point on an assignment and a missing gender agreement and yet these portray the values we hold both in terms of grading and effective communication. A little twist to Thursday involves rethinking those nuts and bolts of the classroom like verb charts, textbooks, and routines to align our daily practices to student outcomes.

The Big Picture

friday, OCTOBER 22TH

It's Fri-yay! As we wrap up a week of incredible ideas, today's presenters remind us to hold on to the Big Picture. Why do you teach? How do you teach? How do students learn? How do we shape our units and assessments? Join us today for some deep dives into methods and mindsets.

MEET YOUR HOST

Jared Romey

Creator Of The World Language Teacher Summit, SpeakingLatino.com, Lifelong Language Learner and Author of 12 Books on Spanish Dialects

Hi, I'm Jared! I’m the creator of SpeakingLatino.com, where my wife Diana and I help Spanish teachers create more time in their lives to spend with their families and still be amazing teachers.

For a long time, I heard from person after person that they had been teaching for years (sometimes 15+ years) and never had access to free language teaching professional development. So, I decided to do something about that and created the World Language Teacher Summit.

Learning languages absolutely changed my life and I want to help you share that same opportunity with your students.

Please join me and thousands of teachers for this World Language Teacher Summit!
