FLES Opening
The Singapore American School, the largest American international school in the world, will have a vacancy in its new FLES program (Intermediate School, grades 3-5) in Spanish for next year. The program meets daily for 40 minutes per session. In addition to a handsome salary, the school provides moving costs, a housing allowance, a liberal holiday schedule and a round-trip ticket to the United States every year.

Currently, there is a staff of four Spanish teachers in place. The new teacher will join a department that is highly competent and well-trained. This new teacher needs to have strong language skills, experience at teaching Spanish to younger learners, a willingness and eagerness to work closely with colleagues and a willingness to continue to learn about effective teaching of languages.

Candidates interested in the position should contact Greg Duncan at interprep@earthlink.net as soon as possible.

Remind others to renew their membership
As the new membership year gets underway, remind other early language educators that NNELL wants to keep members connected to others interested in early language learning around the nation. Have them consider joining NNELL or renewing their membership today so that they can take advantage of all that NNELL has to offer!

Online Elementary WL Methods Course Offered Spring 2013

There are still a few spaces left in the Spring 2013 online course, “Methods in Elementary School World Language Instruction,” which is designed for practicing and pre-service teachers. In this course, 14 national leaders in early world language education collaborate with Dr. Marcia H. Rosenbusch, Iowa State University, by teaching course components in their areas of expertise. The collaborators, including practicing teachers and teacher trainers, represent both the commonly and the less commonly taught languages. This course meets the requirement for the specialized methods course for the Iowa Endorsement in K-8 World Language Education. Check with your State Department of Education to see if this course meets requirements for endorsement or certification in your state.
