The summer of 2021 seems so distant yet so many of the takeaways from the National Network for Early Language Learning (NNELL) Summer Summit shine bright. For me, it was a time for planting instructional seeds and networking with colleagues. It was also a reminder to me of how lucky we are as World Language educators to be surrounded by so many state and national organizations which support our growth as a profession and as individuals. It was also a vivid reminder of the commitment of the educators who openly share their knowledge and experiences and those who, even in summer, seek out opportunities to learn and collaborate. WE ARE A DEDICATED GROUP.
