Hear Suzanne Nguyen's fascinating journey to responsiveness. Suzanne is Executive Director of Federal, Bilingual, and Native American Programs for the Rio Rancho Public School District in Albuquerque, New Mexico. From her position in "mid level management," she has positively influenced cultural and linguistic responsiveness (CLR) in Rio Rancho slowly but surely. Her advocacy is not only professional but personal because of her upbringing in New Mexico as an Asian American with Vietnamese heritage. More interestingly is her education experience, and the matriculation through school as the "only one" or "one of very few, " which drives her passion for equity and CLR and at the same time has been the root of her bi-culturalism. Be moved by a life-changing homecoming she experienced as an adult. As always, anticipate Dr. Hollie's two cents with his take on "who is at the top" of your district could be the glass ceiling for your equity and CLR success.
