The purpose of the Long Island Chapter is to:
– increase interest in the study of Spanish and Portuguese
– keep teachers informed of current trends in second language acquisition,
meetings, and relevant cultural events
– promote friendship and professional growth among teachers of Spanish
and Portuguese at all levels of instruction
– provide opportunities for members to communicate with native speakers
|In addition, we sponsor a variety of activities that provide opportunities to recognize student achievement and talent, including the National Spanish Exam, the Design-A-Card Contest, the Victor Baptiste Essay Contest, and the Long Island Chapter 39 Junior Scholarship.
We invite you to take advantage of all that your chapter offers, and we encourage you to become more directly involved by joining our council and attending our monthly meetings. For more information, please contact any of the council members listed on the Contact Information page of this website.
