Do you know any (non-FL teaching) educators, school staff, or administrators who are bilingual?

We are looking to get in contact with educators, administrators, counselors, and other school staff who are NOT foreign language educators -- but who may use their own language skills to help them in their jobs in education.
All languages and regions of the country are of interest.

We are particularly hoping to find:

-Special Education Teachers or Program Coordinators with foreign language skills that they may use to communicate with students, parents, community members

-Those who have skills in languages other than/in addition to Spanish who may use those skills in a particular language-speaking community in the U.S.

-Undergraduate or graduate students who may be planning careers in education (not language teaching) and who may have a double major/minor in a language and plan to use their language skills to assist them in their career.

If you have any suggestions, please contact me via my Inbox in the ACTFL Online Community or at

Thanks so much for your help!
