El mes de septiembre cada año viene repleto de actividades. Después de un merecido descanso durante el verano, con el noveno mes de nuestro calendario llega el comienzo del siclo escolar en el hemisferio norte. Aunque algunos estamos muy ocupados con la preparación de nuestras clases, no debemos dejar de pasar por alto que entre el 15 de septiembre y el 15 de octubre se celebra el Mes de la Herencia Hispana. Muchos se preguntarán, ¿por qué celebrar la herencia hispana en los Estados Unidos?

De acuerdo a los datos que arrojó el censo de los Estados Unidos realizado en el 2012, la población hispana ascendía a 53.027.708 de habitantes de origen hispano radicados en territorio norteamericano. Dentro de ese censo no se contó al elevado número de inmigrantes indocumentados que  viven en el país, por lo tanto, la población hispana superar representa más del 17%  del total de la población en los Estados Unidos.

Sep 10 PD: Ain't nobody got time for that... Right? - Resources for your Spanish Classroom

Back to School with Screaming

Anne Silva

Well, for most of us, back-to-school has come and gone. The new-car smell went out of the classroom right about day 3, most of our snazzy G2 gel pens have gone AWOL, and we're settling into the trenches for another productive year. Good intentions still abound, even if some of that nervous energy from the first week back has been replaced with good old-fashioned alarm-clock loathing. 

So I must be crazy to bring up Professional Development now, right as we get into the stride of the school year, right? Who has time for PD when we're just figuring out who has lunchroom duty today, answering a dozen parent emails every morning, and scheduling a blue million committee meetings as though we had any time or energy to spare?
