From the Desk of the IALAS President
Dear IALAS Familia,
Welcome to IALAS. We hope you find a home here and a place of belonging, support and guidance. IALAS aims to continue to reach out to educators, administrators and superintendents throughout Illinois so that we collaborate and build strong networks, IALAS-to-districts, district-to-district, district to schools and school-to-school relationships. This year we look forward to enhancing improvements, best practices and strategies for our emergent bilingual students. Together we will share evidence-based practices for core instruction. We look forward to in-depth conversations of improving race and equity within our schools and communities. We will continue to build support for our DACA students and finally focusing on YOU via mentoring and the IALAS scholarship program.
Our enrollment is open for you to renew or become a new member. We are grateful for those who continue to be part of our familia and we hope you let others know to join. As an IALAS member, your wings will spread and together we will show how education in Illinois puts children, our future leaders of the world first.
