MISSION & HISTORY.

In 1996, teachers from Dolores Gonzales Elementary School organized the first La Cosecha Dual Language Conference with a mission to network and share best practices. This first event hosted 86 educators from across Albuquerque. This national conference brings together the largest gathering of educators, parents, researchers, and practitioners supporting dual language, two-way immersion, one-way developmental bilingual, and one-way heritage language immersion programs from across the US.
