Well, welcome to the club. In today's hectic world and troubled economy, stress is a part of everyone's life. And while it's true that stress that comes with certain events, such as buying a house, chang- ing jobs or the loss of a loved one, can affect your health and even your life span, the reality is that stress, has the potential to moti- vate us, to help us focus and to provide imPortant information about ourselves. The key is to learn how to respond to stress and to make the most of it. One starting point is to ana- lyze how stress When you feel stressed, monitor how you're reacting. Do you get irri- tated with others, feel physically tense or develop a headache? Per- not all stress has to be damaging, haps you get jumpy or very talk- N M students to benefit rom federal AP grant Submitted by SEN. JEFF BINGAMANIWashington, DC 'U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman has reported today that the New Mexico Public Education De- partm'ent has been awarded $98,800 in federal funds to help students pay for Advanced Place- ment (AP) tests.

A short piano musical presentation by Jack Moody will begin the meet- ing. Refreshments will be erved and the public is invited to attend.

The $98,800 will make it pos- sible to help pay for 3,800 AP tests in the state. Bingaman is the au- thor of legislation that created the AP Test Fee program. "The Adwnced Pla, cJqt program helps:high Chbdl gtU- dents get a jump on theircollege education. But test fees can be a major barrier for students This funding will help ensure that cost will not stand in the way of stu- dents benefitting from AP pro- grams," Bingaman said. The AP program, adminis- tered by the College Board, is an internationally recognized set of approximately 30 rigorous courses in subjects ranging from history to chemistry. The classes are taught to high-school stu- dents at their schools by specially trained teachers. Students can, obtain college credit for an AP course by passing a standardized exam. Bingaman is a strong sup- porter of the AP program and has been at the forefront of efforts to expand the program to more dis- advantaged students -- by help- ing states lower exam fees and train more teachers -- and fought to make sure that the AP program was an essential component of No Child Left Behind.

Once you see what stress does to you, look for ways to better handle your reaction. If your stress seems to give you energy, try to channel it in appropriate directions. Step away from the stress-inducing event and use you energy productively. Take a walk, do some gardening or find other ph,sical activity that will redirect some of that stress-in- duced energy. If stress, however, seems to sap your energy, then take time to rest and get back on track. Try a few minutes of meditation, or something relaxing like reading or listening to music: Try finding a pleasant activity rather than just facing the unpleasant reactions stress can bring. As you learn to handle your stress, you also want to reflect upon why you're feeling stressed to begin with. Start writing down situations and activities that prompt stressful feelings for you. S yoU' develop sucfi !it'S, try to a/Icz!tti fears tl/fit'fi!bri neath these stressful situations. In identifying such situations you may find the fears are unfounded, or that the situations can often be avoided or minimized. Responding to and manag- ing stress takes work, but your goal is understanding what stress is telliag you in order to changes for a more positive and less stress- ful you. However, if you find that stress is overwhelming you and that your efforts aren't minimiz- ing its affects, then look for pro- fessional help. A counseling pro- fessional can offer stress manage- ment tools to help reduce stress levels and allow you to use your stress for more positive outcomes.

On this day in Albu- querque, seven middle school teachers from around the state will be recognized with the Golden Apple Award from the Golden Apple Foundation of New Mexico. At the Tribute to Teacher Excellence celebration in Albu- querque, all teachers will be rec- ognized and honored for the very important work they do in all our classrooms, helping to prepa:e New Mexico's children for suc- cess in life and inspiring them for lifelong learning. Studies continue to show the most important influence on stu- dent learning is the quality of the classroom teacher. Because of the impact quality teaching has on the future success of New Mexico's children, Golden Apple Foundation of New Mexico is dedicated to the mission of rec- ognizing, recruiting and provi d - ing professional development for classroom teachers.
