July 2012

S-P-E-L-L. Spell. Spell en español significa deletrear y hechizo. Ambas palabras están conectadas porque la tradición nos cuenta que los brujos deletreaban las palabras en muchos de sus hechizos. El 20 de julio de 2012 vivimos bajo el hechizo de la Segunda Edición del Concurso nacional de deletreo en español de los Estados Unidos. Organizado por NMABE (New Mexico Association for Bilingual Education) con la colaboración de la Consejería de Educación de la Embajada de España en Washington a través de la Asesoría de Educación en Albuquerque y patrocinado por la editorial Santillana, esta segunda edición tuvo lugar, como la primera, en el Centro Nacional de Cultura Hispana en Albuquerque. Si la primera edición tuvo 11 concursantes representando 4 estados (Nuevo México, Texas, Oregón y Colorado), esta segunda edición contó con la participación de 19 concursantes y la representación de 7 estados de la Unión (además de los cuatro anteriores, se unieron Wisconsin, California y Nueva York).

Recipe Book

Summertime is supposed to be the time you don’t think about work or your students, but let’s be honest; you kind of have to think about them. You have to reflect on what happened the year before in order to improve the next year. Some administrators will ask you to take classes, the department chair will give you a summer reading list, and other teachers will challenge you to look for supplemental materials that you all can use during the year. But that’s not what I’m going to encourage you to do. I challenge you to TRAVEL! Yes, travel. Where else are you going to find a collection of recipes for our recipe book?
