Dear Colleagues and Friends:
I’d like to personally welcome each of you to the NMABE 2015 Conference: “Learning
Through Language: A Benefit for All!” It’s an exciting time for educators from around New
Mexico to gather together as professionals, learning from one another. As we strive to
provide our emerging bilingual students with quality instruction to attain the Common
Core State Standards and achieve academically, we recognize that it is through language that
learning is accomplished. As life-long learners, we continue to grow and develop
professionally, remaining always adaptable, motivated and responsive to meeting the needs
of each and every student in the state of New Mexico. Education is always confronted with
times of change, and we’re meeting these changes as strong advocates for educational reform
that recognizes the power and worth of bilingualism and multiculturalism. Language is the
key that opens the door to learning.
I’d like to give you an idea of what you can expect and what we hope to achieve over the
next few days. You will get to hear from experts in the field regarding Native Language and
Culture, Dual Language Education, strategies for English Language Learners, content

About NMABE
MISSION T
he New Mexico Association for Bilingual Education is dedicated to supporting Bilingual Educators
in their work and in their professional growth throughout the state of New Mexico. We believe that
Bilingual Education benefits all students - those who are learning English as well as those who are
learning other languages. We recognize the importance of many different kinds of educators in the lives
of New Mexico students: parents, extended family members, teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals
and peers. NMABE embraces the rich cultural and linguistic diversity within our state and promotes its
inclusion in the education of all students. The association promotes educational excellence and equity
through the creation of activities including advocacy, professional development and research.
NMABE PURPOSES • To stimulate professional development;
• To establish national contacts through affiliation with national professional organizations;
• To provide opportunities to study and discuss issues concerning Bilingual Education;
• To act as a clearinghouse in circulating information of value
and in keeping teachers posted on the latest educational
movements and findings;
• To present significant findings through El Noticiero, through
presentations and/or via the NMABE website - www.nmabe.
net;
• To address Bilingual Multicultural Education through institutes and the NMABE Annual Conference;
• To help improve and support native language instruction
and the teaching of English through Bilingual Education
programs.

•Students will participate in breakout sessions

A key intention of this inaugural NMABE
Student Leadership Institute is to create a
link to the annual La Cosecha institute held
every November. Schools do not have to have
participated in the La Cosecha institute, but for
schools that have, the idea is to bring a small
group of committed student leaders to focus in
more deeply on work they began at La Cosecha.
Over the next several years, organizers hope to
create multiple check-in points for students to
receive feedback and support for their leadership
projects.
*Please note that this event is intended for students in grades 9-11 as it aims to complete projects in the upcoming school year.

Can We Create Parent Partnerships with Bilingual Families Who
Have Children with Special Needs?
¡Sí, Se Puede!"
Parent involvement in Special Education has, and continues to be, a difficult goal to achieve in public education, even though parent participation
in the IEP process is mandatory. The
composition of Special Education
placements continues to be heavy in
minority representation. This should
be a concern to us all. However, we
believe that some confusion exists
as to what parental involvement is
and how it can be defined. Parental
involvement must be defined within
a cultural context. Schools need
to change their perception of what
parent involvement is and what it
entails. This presentation describes
what parental involvement in Special
Education can look like if it is embedded in a cultural context.

Raising Academic Achievement for
All Students Through a Collaborative and Dynamic Data Study Process
Differentiating the Common Core
State Standards using WIDA's ACCESS proficiency levels and “Can
Do” Descriptors
In our K-5 school, which has an
ethnically diverse and high-poverty
student population, we ensure all
students' academic success through
a collaborative PLC data study
process that monitors individual student growth on multiple measures,
including NWEA MAPs andMPG.
This process empowers teachers to
fully maximize the NWEA reports
in order to create individual instructional plans for each child. Using this
process, Puesta del Sol Elementary
has significantly increased academic
achievement and is now recognized
as a leader in the effective use of data.
In order to meet the needs of our
developing bilingual students and
to achieve the Common Core State
Standards, all teachers must go beyond using basic composite scores
of student performance assessment.
This presentation will focus on
how classroom teachers can employ
WIDA's “Can Do” Descriptors to
differentiate instruction to implement
the Common Core State Standards.

his award was created in the early years of Bilingual Education in New Mexico,
in memory of an outstanding parent liaison in the Taos Schools’ Title VII Bilingual Education Program. Teófila did much to inform, involve and deepen parents’
understanding of the importance of language, history and culture in the curriculum.
As a result of her work, many parents became involved by providing needed resources

to do well in school. Teófila touched the hearts, minds and souls of many.

THE MATÍAS L. CHACÓN AWARD
T
his award is named in honor of the late State Senator Matías L. Chacón. It is awarded to recognize a New Mexican who has made a significant contribution to Bilingual Education at the state level. Senator Matías Chacón
(from the Española area) introduced the Bilingual Multicultural Education Act of 1973.
Senator Chacón was interested in quality in the public schools, and was most
concerned about the Spanish-speaking population, not only in the north, but also
in the entire state. Senator Chacón sought a broader application of the state’s prior
Barbara Perea Casey
Las Vegas, NM
Bilingual Education legislation, which had been designed only for non-English speakers. Without funding, it would be difficult to realize the aspirations of the people
Inee Yang Slaughter
for bilingualism and cultural preservation.
Santa Fe, NM
So, Senator Chacón introduced legislation for Bilingual Education to receive sufficient funding to implement quality Bilingual Education programs for all students
in Grades K-6, not just those with limited ability in English. His actions instituted
the idea of Bilingual Multicultural Education in all corners of the state. The Act nurtured the concept that it was
sound to use the home language as a medium of instruction and to include the state’s cultures in the curriculum. This
brought about a resurgence of pride in the languages of the state, and a means by which the state’s institutions - its
schools - could preserve and develop its heritage languages while also developing English language proficiency for all.
T
THE BEN LUJÁN LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
he Ben Luján Lifetime Achievement Award is NMABE’s newest award. It is named after the late Speaker of
the House, Rep. Ben Luján, who served with distinction as one of New Mexico’s longest-serving legislators. As
the Speaker of the House, he became one of the most powerful legislators in the
state and in the state’s history, and he became equally more humble, passionate
Dr. Paul Martínez
and caring.
Velarde, NM
Speaker Luján was often fondly referred to as “the champion of the people.”
His ability to be accessible to all was one of his hallmarks. He was open to
Regis Pecos
ideas, especially those of educators, and developed a trust and confidence in them,
Cochiti Pueblo, NM
which in turn, created an extraordinarily profound partnership.
As a staunch supporter for education, Speaker Luján led the efforts over the
years to sustain the funding for education. He supported the creation of the Bilingual Multicultural Education Act of
1973. He also created special legislation to develop and implement after-school K-8 programs as an enrichment and
academic support for all students, especially for those at risk.

Creating a caring classroom environment, in which all students are

for effective teaching and learning.
The intentional use of language in
instructional delivery, combined
with appropriate classroom accommodations and/or modifications, can
positively affect how diverse students
perceive themselves in their learning
