Dear OMLTA Colleagues:

¡Buenas noticias!

Nipissing University, in collaboration with the OMLTA, is offering the first-ever Spanish – Part 2 Additional Qualification course!

All Ontario teachers in good standing with the OCT who have one year of teaching experience (in any subject area, in any division) and who have a qualification in Spanish from a Faculty of Education or the Part 1 AQ are eligible for this course. Candidates with an Honour Specialist in Spanish may also enrol.

The course is completed in English and Spanish, and is offered completely online between January 28 and April 17, 2015. There is no expectation to participate during the March Break.

We are pleased to see this AQ course be offered as a result of advocacy from OMLTA members and directors.

We hope that you consider this outstanding professional development opportunity.

Best wishes. ¡Saludos!

As a member of the Ontario Modern Language Teachers’ Association I am proud to be part of the networking of language teachers across this province. Imagine, OMLTA is celebrating 125 years! That’s quite a milestone. It represents countless hours of work, limitless passion for teaching and learning, and invaluable support from colleague to colleague. Memories of early days at conferences include appreciation for the opportunity to network with so many teachers of French; forum for instructional strategies and resources to be shared; and opportunity to convey the essence of the key-note speaker’s message to colleagues ‘back home’ who did or did not teach French—just because it was so powerful and such a privilege to be there and to hear speakers of such stature as Stephen Lewis-I still wear proudly the pewter lapel pin from that year, “Languages for Peace.” 125 years of OMLTA memories to look back on, and foundation to build on! We’re part of a profession learning more and more about language learning. Looking forward to March, 2011!
