Highest Aspirations: Season 8 Preview

Time to complete: 

We started the Highest Aspirations podcast almost four years ago to help inform and inspire educators with resources and ideas they can use to support multilingual learners. We love hearing how listeners like you share episodes with colleagues and coworkers, friends in education, new teachers they mentor, and even their own students. Perhaps you are here because someone told you about Highest Aspirations. We are grateful for the support and trust of our community.

As we kick off Season 8, we continue to build momentum around growing and nurturing a community of educators who are connected by their passion for serving multilingual learners. Here are a few things you can look forward to this year and beyond: 

  • Transcripts: We have committed to increasing the accessibility of our interviews by providing professional transcripts for all future episodes. You will find links to transcripts on our show notes and on accompanying blog posts.

  • Blog: Each episode will be accompanied by a blog post with key takeaways, valuable resources from the interview, and a full transcript. You can access these on our community page.

  • Community: We are now offering more opportunities to discuss and collaborate around the content we share. Start by adding comments to our blog posts. More to come!

  • Video: All future episodes will be available in video format on our YouTube channel

As we work to create and foster more opportunities for learning and connection, we are being more intentional about our reimagined online Learning Community - still free and always free, but a more personalized and intimate experience for those engaging in topics and content and seeking to forge partnerships with like-minded professionals around the country. Learn more and stay up to date by joining our community. You’ll receive our weekly community brief with news and multimedia resources you can use with your colleagues and students right away. 

Finally, please let us know how we’re doing by leaving us a review on Apple Podcasts. If you have ideas for topics or guests, feel free to email As always, thanks for listening. Stay safe and take care of each other.
