Ann-Marie Wiese, PhD, focuses on issues related to the education of young dual language learners at WestEd’s Center for Child and Family Studies and currently directs the Parent Involvement Project, a family engagement project that partners with California State Preschool Programs in three local school districts. She has contributed to the development of various resources in collaboration with the California Department of Education to support the education of young dual language learners. She co-directed the project that developed the California’s Best Practices for Young Dual Language Learners Research Overview Papers which informed the California Preschool Program Guidelines and accompanying videos. Wiese led a local professional development effort for preschool practitioners that involved core seminars, on-site coaching, and a self-assessment tool of language and literacy practices to support the language and literacy development of young DLLs. Wiese most recently co-authored a chapter titled “Pathways to Relational Family Engagement with Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Families: Can Reflective Practice Guide Us?” for the edited volume Family Involvement in Early Education and Child Care, Advances in Early Education and Day Care. Wiese received a PhD in education from the University of California, Berkeley. She began her career as a Spanish–English bilingual teacher in a two-way immersion program.
