Conference Overview:

This year, the theme of WABE’s Annual Conference is STEAMing Ahead! We will explore how to build access to topics and careers in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics for our bilingual students. How can we best teach the content of STEAM topics while also teaching the language that goes with them? We are inviting workshops and special presenters on these topics, but as always, the Annual Conference is a place for thinking, planning and networking in all areas of bilingual education. Please plan to attend and bring all your great ideas and questions!


What We Do:

The Washington Association for Bilingual Education promotes bilingual/multicultural education throughout the state of Washington in every possible way, at all educational and legislative levels, and among all groups.

Our charge is to increase educational opportunities for all children whose background suggests bilingual/multicultural education is the more appropriate and effective type of program for them. Because of our increasingly global community and the inherent advantages of bilingualism and multicultural awareness, we also seek to promote such programs for all populations.
