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.

For further details and to enrol, visit the Nipissing University website at: http://www.nipissingu.ca/academics/faculties/schulich-school-of-education/pd-for-teachers/Pages/default.aspx

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!

I look SO forward to the yearly OMLTA spring conference. It comes at just the right time when we all need our batteries recharged. I return to school on Monday morning after the weekend conference bursting with renewed enthusiasm and ideas that I can hardly wait to implement. I carry in my mind’s eye the group of elementary school boys brought to one of the workshops to demonstrate the AIM program. They were so impressive, earnest (and cute!). But I will remain forever grateful to the OMLTA for giving me the opportunity to further develop my teaching skills through a month of professional development at the stage BELC in France, offered free by the French embassy in Toronto. That was such an enriching PD opportunity from which other students and teachers have benefitted as I have shared the knowledge gained there. I have remained in contact with other French teachers from around the world that I met there. Thank you to the OMLTA and the French embassy in Toronto for helping to build the road to French language acquisition that we are all travelling together as a global community.
