Teachers' Presentation Voted 10 Best

Five CHCCS Foreign Language in Elementary Schools (FLES) teachers, made two presentations at the annual Foreign Language Association of North Carolina (FLANC) conference earlier this month.  Their presentations were entitled, Cultural Infusion: Blending culture into your lessons and An Assessment Journey: Tales from 5th grade FLES teachers.  Of the 96 presentations made, their Cultural Infusion session was voted as one of the 10 best.  Selections were made based on topic, expertise, delivery, usefulness, audience response and overall quality.

The presentation team consisted of:  Ana Bernad-Calhoun, Morris Grove Elementary; Shawna Catlett, Ephesus Elementary; Luisa Caicedo, McDougle and Scroggs Elementary; Carlos Perera, Seawell Elementary; and Jennifer Roth, Glenwood Elementary.

"It is an honor and privilege for me to work with such an excellent team of teachers," said CHCCS World Language Coordinator Dr. Elaine Watson-Grant.  "Our FLES teachers build the solid foundation that students need in language acquisition within a cultural and interdisciplinary context.  I am thrilled that they are being recognized at the state level for all of their hard work," she added.

The annual FLANC conference was held October 2-4 in Winston-Salem.
