Region VI Delegate
Claribel González is a resource specialist at RBE-RN West, (Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network) where she supports districts in achieving academic excellence for multilingual learners. Her love of language started at a young age as a result of her enrollment in bilingual programs in the Buffalo Public Schools.
Claribel attended the University at Buffalo where she earned a master’s degree in childhood education with a bilingual extension. Her commitment to give back to the Latino community led her to begin a career as a bilingual 5th grade teacher in the Buffalo Public Schools. Claribel later took on the role as the bilingual coach for the Division of Multilingual Education in the Buffalo Public Schools where she gained experience in providing side by side coaching to teachers as well as assisting in the strengthening of the district’s bilingual programs.
