Heritage Language & Culture

Minnesota’s students and families speak more than 300 home languages.  In an effort to increase the opportunities for language instruction across the state, PELSB is committed to supporting heritage language teachers in the licensure process.

A heritage language & culture teacher is a teacher with a connection to a community's language and culture who uses this connection and language proficiency to support students as they learn academic content or the language and culture of that particular community.
