    GUADALUPE VALDÉS is the Bonnie Katz Tenenbaum Professor of Education at Stanford University. Working in the area of applied linguistics, much of her work has focused on the English-Spanish bilingualism of Latinos in the United States and on discovering and describing how two languages are developed, used, and maintained by individuals who become bilingual in immigrant communities. Dr. Valdés has investigated Latino students in elementary, middle school, high school and college leading to six books and more than 70 articles. Her book Bilingualism and Testing: A Special Case of Bias (Ablex Publishing Co., 1994) is seen as a timely classic that explores the growing challenge of increased use of standardized tests. Her most recent book, Steps in the Journey: Latino Children Learning English will be published by Teachers College Press in the spring of 2010.
