The Ultimate Dual Immersion Back-to-School Shopping List

Summer is coming to an end and, though it’s been magical, I’m excited to start another year of dual language education! It’s absolutely amazing to watch my (previously) monolingual children improve their fluency and reading abilities in two languages throughout the school year.

Filled with anxiety, I did the same thing I always do when control is out of my hands: approach the challenge head on, assertively, with forced casual conservation mixed with the unneccessary intensity that pegs me as the crazy woman that I actually am. “Hi, great to see you again.
