MarilynA Selleck Call 575-574-5412 or 542-9181 Today! teaching, learning conditions survey Submitted by NEA NM Last week, education leaders representing a wide array of or- ganization from across New Mexico announced an upcoming statewide survey of teachers and administrators on school teach- ing and learning conditions. The purpose of the Teaching, Empow- ering, Leading and Learning (TELL) New Mexico Survey is to document and analyze how teach- ers and other educators view the teaching and learning conditions at their school. The anonymous survey will provide valuable data for policymakers, educators, and stakeholders so they can make evidence-based decisions on poli- cies and practices that will im- prove student achievement and teacher retention. The TELL New Mexico Part- ners were brought together tinder the leadership of Chaouki Abdallah, Provost, University of New Mexico, as part of the Uniyersity's initiative to estab- lish a world-class College of Edu- cation at UNM that rivals the best education schools anywhere. "This is a unique opportunity to bring all education partners to- gether to help pave the path for- ward for our next generation of education practitioners. The re- sults of the statewide survey will inform how we can best prepare classroom teachers and school leaders, "said Provost Abdallah. TELL New Mexico Partners in- elude New Mexico Public Edu- cation Department, New Mexico Coalition of Educational Lead- ers, New Mexico School Boards Association, National Education Association of New Mexico, New Mexico Association of Second- ary School Principals, American Federation of Teachers New Mexico, and Albuquerque Teach- ers Federation. NEA New Mexico's Presi- dent, Betty Patterson, a teacher on leave from the Las Cruces Pub- lic Schools agrees that TELL New Mexico is a wonderful op- portunity to hear from school- based educators. "Research shows the connection of positive teaching conditions to positive student outcomes. With TELL New Mexico we show we value the voices of the educators who work with children every day in our schools and want to hear from them as to the supports they say they have to do their jobs well." From January 27 through February 21, 2014, the TELL Sur- Udall recruiting summer session interns or l .C., Office Submitted by SEN. TOM UDALL'S OFFiCEWashington, DC U.S. Senator Tom Udall in- vites New Mexico college stu- dents interested in gaining legis- lative or press relations experi- ence to apply for summer intern- ships in his Washington, D.C., office. For more information and to apply for an internship, please visit http:// ships. During the upcoming sum- mer internship program, Udall's office in Washington, D.C., will host two summer sessions: May 27 - June 27, and June 30 - Au- gust 1. Applications and letters of recommendation for either summer internship session must be submitted by March 16. "Congressional internships provide a unique educational opportunity for students to gain first-hand insight into the inner workings of Congress," said Udall. "The experience and per- spective gained through a con- gressional internship can be in- valuable to anyone interested in government or pursuing a ca- reer in public service. Interns play an integral role in the daily operations of my offices, and I encourage interested students to apply." Students of all majors are encouraged to apply and intern- ships may count toward college credit. Students should check with their respective college or university for requirements. vey will be administered to all licensed New Mexico educators employed in the state. All school-based, licensed public school teachers and prin- cipals will be asked to submit their perceptions on a variety of issues related to student achieve- ment and teacher retention, in- cluding the adequacy of facilities and resources, time, empower- ment, school and teacher leader- ship, community support, manag- ing of student conduct, profes- sional development; mentoring and induction services. By documenting and analyz- ing how public school educators view critical teaching and learn- ing conditions, this initiative will provide each New Mexico school with its own data that can become a part of the ongoing improve- ment planning processes in each' school, school districts, and at the state level. TELL New Mexico Survey data can be used to pro- mote discussiOns about instruc- tion, planning time, professional development, school improve- ment, and related policy issues at both the school and district lev- els. "Our superintendents look forward to working with school leaders to use the data gathered in the TELL New Mexico Survey. This will be another valuable tool in our data toolbox that drives instructional practices," said Dr. Gloria Rendon, Executive Direc- tor New Mexico Coalition of Educational Leaders. The survey will be adminis- tered by the New Teacher Center (NTC), a national organization dedicated to supporting the de- velopment of a high-quality teaching force. NTC has con- ducted similar surveys in other states, and since 2009 has heard from more than one million edu- cators. Results from the TELL New Mexico Survey will be ana- lyzed and reported approxi- mately five weeks after the close of the survey window. Results will be at the school (if at least 50 percent of educators responded), district, and state levels.

A man wakes up after sleeping under an ADVERTISED blanket on art ADVERTISED mattress and pulls off ADVERTISED pajamas, bathes in an ADVERTISED shower, shaves with an ADVERTISED razor, brushes his teeth with ADVERTISED toothpaste, washes with ADVERTISED soap, puts on ADVERTISED clothes, drinks a cup of ADVERTISED coffee, drives to work in an ADVERTISED car and then...refuses to ADVERTISE, believing it doesn't pay. Later, if business is poor, ADVERTISES it for sale. WHY IS IT? I k Rudiger is AES Student of the Month The January student of the month at Animas Elementary is Kimber Rudiger.
