AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF TEACHERS OF SPANISH & PORTUGUESE
NOTICIAS - 6 DE JUNIO 2016
Happy summer everyone! We hope your school year closed on a positive note.
We have been working hard to reboot the state chapter of KATSP this year. We are nearly there; the only thing left to do is secure a bank account which has proved more difficult than first thought. Living all over the state and having to be in the same place at the same time along with someone from the national office at a bank in Minnesota has been a stumbling block. We are hoping to overcome this obstacle in the near future and are looking forward to hosting some useful professional development and student learning opportunities.
We are planning an overnight professional development with Wichita State University, Friday, September 16th - Saturday, September 17th, so save the date with more information to come this summer. It looks like we will focus on teaching 90% in the target language.
We know it is early, but we are already thinking of next year and are looking for motivated individuals to be board members next year. There is only a minimum time commitment where the board will meet periodically during the school year and will require a few hours of your own time at home. If you are interested in being nominated or you know someone who should be nominated please let the board know via email to Stephanie French at [email protected].
