FMS In The News: Farmington High School graduate revels in role on AMC series 'Dark Winds.' By Mike Easterling, Farmington Daily Times. Farmington High School graduate Deanna Allison says she is grateful to be a part of the AMC drama series "Dark Winds," which is an adaptation of a popular series of novels by New Mexico author Tony Hillerman. She said she enjoys being able to support her family and the increased opportunities that are likely to come her way from being a part of a successful TV program. But the most rewarding part of the experience, she said, is getting to portray an intelligent, determined, self-confident woman who is part of a larger collective of characters that conveys the best of her Diné culture.

June 1, 2022: “¿Cuáles son los tipos de nubes?” Asked instructor Geni Flores during today’s TESOL endorsement course. What are the types of clouds? She had asked the new cohort of teachers in Spanish to illustrate how learning a lesson in a different language can be distinctive for non-native English speakers, while showing teaching skills to make content easier to learn, including the use of simple visuals and a basic vocabulary. With populations growing in number, it’s not uncommon to meet someone who is learning English for the first time. This creates a wonderful opportunity for teachers to use language-rich strategies that help English Learner students and all students increase their language skills. “Cirros son nubes altas compuestas de cristales de hielo. Cirrus are high clouds made of ice crystals," she asked the group to repeat. “Cúmulos son nubes que se parecen al algodón. Cumulus are clouds that are cotton-like," Ms. Flores continued. To be an effective TESOL teacher to an English Learner student, it’s important to understand the language learning process, as well as have specialized, research-based skills and instructional practices. Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages or TESOL is a one-year program funded by FMS that helps teachers provide language-rich instruction. The TESOL endorsement program provides a comprehensive professional development model for teachers to expand their ability to address the social, cultural, educational, and linguistic factors that impact the achievement of their English Learner students in today’s diverse classrooms. Our thanks to Geni Flores, TESOL Coordinator and Bilingual Education Instructor at Eastern New Mexico University for today’s training. For more information, you can contact our Bilingual/Multicultural Department at (505) 324-9840. More to come.
