1) I am going to NABE!!! (National Association of Bilingual Educators) Yippee! Even though I don't have an offical bilingual classroom, I am a teacher of English Learners. I can't wait to hear the latest research available on English Learners, hear awesome speakers such as Jose Luis Orozco, Virginia P. Collier, Jim Cummins, Lily Wong Fillmore and Kate Kinsella and last but certainly not least pick up FREE goodies at the vendor tables. Yay!
2) Check out GRD's latest post. He has posted a song that addresses problems with NCLB and testing.
3) Vacation has been good to me. I have had plenty of time to rest, relax and enjoy myself. I am refreshed and ready to go back on Monday. I am actually looking forward to it!
Have a good weekend everyone!
