Today's episode is with two of my former instructors and they have SO much experience and expertise to share with us!

Amy Stolpestad and Michelle Benegas are both teacher leaders and advocates. They are also "teacher teachers" - they continually support and guide all levels of EL and content teachers and administrators through their work in Teacher Leadership for School-Wide English Learning (SWEL).

Join the conversation as we define types of leadership, ways to collaborate, and own our expertise as leaders in advocacy for our students and families.
