Ofelia García’s vision for educational equity for emergent bilinguals has always put children and their agency within social contexts at its heart. This essay draws upon Ofelia’s own writing and the experiences of the authors -- a current and a former student of hers -- to explore how centering people’s dynamic bilingual practices has been a source of innovation for bilingual education theory and practice.
