APS DLI Program Teachers

  • As the APS DLI program continues to grow, we are constantly seeking master educators who are committed to the vision of biliteracy for our students. The APS DLI program is a two teacher model with English and Spanish partner teacher pairs in each grade level. Engilish partner teachers must hold Early Childhood certification (and ESOL endorsement/certification if in a two-way program school). Spanish partner teachers must hold Early Childhood certification and demonstrate Advanced-Mid or higher Spanish proficiency on the ACTFL OPI and WPT.

    If you are interested in teaching in our DLI program, please contact Dr. Margaret McKenzie at mamckenzie@atlanta.k12.ga.us.

     

    Atlanta Public Schools is always on the look out for dedicated, passionate bilingual teachers who have what it takes to move our DLI program forward. APS, in collaboration with other metro-area districts, partnered with Georgia State University to develop a tool to assist prospectie DLI teachers. If you speak Spanish and are interested in becoming a dual language teacher in the state of Georgia, please click on the link below to access the GSU webpage for more information and to access a comprehensive questionnaire. These questions are designed to assist you in determining the best next steps for you.
