101st Annual AATSP Conference


The American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP) is the United States’ leading organization in serving educators to support the teaching and learning of Spanish and Portuguese (K-16+). We provide a forum for instructors from the U.S. and abroad during our AATSP Annual Conference that includes over 300 events during 3 1/2 days of discussions, workshops, sessions, exhibits, speeches, and awards that reflect trends, interests, and the needs of educators.

Highlights in this year’s 101st Annual Conference include the 75th anniversary of Portuguese joining the Association, and the Centennial celebration of Sigma Delta Pi—the National Collegiate Hispanic Society. The topics of this year’s conference include (but are not limited to) innovative curriculum, assessments and credentials, languages and the professions, languages and communities, languages and humane education, heritage language instruction and learning, and advocating for Spanish and Portuguese.
