Texas Language Leaders' Leadership Cohort

Applications for the 2023-2024 cohort are open until February 28, 2023. 

*Apply via Google form.* 


The first state-wide leadership cohort for World Language teachers met June 8-9, 2022.  Together, our leaders learned:

  • what great leaders do to become effective
  • the fundamentals of planning & instruction
  • what makes PD effective

Each participant designed a leadership project to implement during the 2022-2023 school year!  Watch out Texas, the needle for student proficiency is about to move!
