MAIN Membership for 2020-21
We are in the process of re-imagining our support for dual language and immersion (DLI) educators with a new and expanded Board. As a part of this process, MAIN will be revisiting membership policies to ensure that they promote broad state-wide participation and sustain the work of the organization. Because of this and the unique circumstances of this school year, the MAIN Board has voted to suspend all membership fees for the 2020-2021 academic year.
That said, MAIN will continue to provide networking and other support for DLI educators to collaborate across programs and districts. Over the summer DLI program leaders and Kindergarten teachers benefitted from meeting virtually on a regular basis. These online meetings provided a forum to dialogue and exchange ideas about how to best meet the challenges of ensuring high quality immersion in the midst of the CoVid-19 pandemic. MAIN will continue to host such forums throughout the school year for program leaders and K-12 teachers, because we know that we are stronger working together!
MAIN EVENTS FEEDBACK:
"The organization of the event was great! During the first session workshop I learned a lot. It was very practical and I will use this new application in my future classroom."
"I loved the amazing new ideas I learned in the immersion improv-integration of language and movement. Thanks for having the first half hour of arrive and have some coffee and food. Thank you so much for the gift card, great idea!"
