Dr. Castro’s chapter, “Validating the Linguistic Strengths of English Learners: Los Angeles Unified School District’s Implementation of the Seal of Biliteracy” builds upon her CSULB doctoral dissertation and her research interests in expanding multilingualism programs and competency, and building capacity in teachers and administrators to support and provide English language learners an equitable education.
