Leesburg Elementary School offers the opportunity for any incoming Kindergarten or Grade 1 student from within or outside the district to join its Dual Language Immersion (DLI) program.

DLI is a growing K-12 program that empowers all students to become bilingual, bilingual, and bicultural. Students spend half of their day learning in Spanish and the other half learning in English. Students gain an understanding of their new language through rich language acquisition techniques and practice with peers who are native speakers of the language they are learning. Interested parents can visit the program and see the results for themselves, according to a press release from Warsaw Community Schools.

Those interested in joining the WCS Dual Language Spanish teaching team should contact Crystal Kreider at [email protected].

WCS will provide support and guidance to applicants without an active Indiana teaching license.
