I am looking for a Spanish leave replacement at the high school level for the first quarter of the 2014-2015 school year.  All interested applicants should apply directly at the Plainview-Old Bethpage School District website @

Looking forward to seeing my colleagues at the Collegial Circle and FLACS Meeting on June 8th.

Can anyone suggest a good penpal program that I could use with my students at large? I have tried a couple of places, but they are just not good or user-friendly. I wish the position of Distance Learning Coordinator existed in my school, but it doesn't, tee, hee (re: Edutopia video: Chicago's Walter Payton's prep school). If anyone uses technology in their classroom to connect to native speakers, whether it be for a tour of a museum, or exchanging friendly emails, please let me know. I would like that component in my classrooms.

Bravo Carmen! You did a great job in speaking out for our profession as language teachers. Great exposure! Keep it up!

As president of FLACS (Foreign Language Association of Chairpersons and Supervisors) I was interviewed on NBC 4 Today in New York for the segment "Visiones" by Lynda Baquero on the impact of the elimination of the NYS foreign language exams.

This is also on YouTube:  please make comments and get the word around that the study of foreign languages is crucial to our students and their future. The elimination of the NYS LOTE exams sends the message that foreign language studies is not important. We need to assess what we value instead of valuing what is assessed.

Had to share this great video from Edutopia.  Hopefully this is the future for our students but right now it is the present for students in Chicago's Walter Payton College Prep.   It takes education to mean more than just about us; it's about learning about the world. Students must take four years of a foreign language and use their language studies to make connections in other disciplines.

We have I portable Smart Board at the HS and 1 at the MS. The teachers use it primarily for vocabulary, videos, united streaming, Power Point and games (Jeopardy). I think each classroom should have one! Once the teachers discover what they can do with it, they want to use it more. We have a technology trainer in our district and he teaches whoever wants to learn. On staff development day we had technology workshops including Smart Board instruction.
