Spanish Language Outreach Training in Seattle

I had the privilege to attend the Spanish Language Outreach Training Institute in Seattle last week. This is a program coordinated by WebJunction through funding from OCLC and the Gates Foundation. Check out this great post on BlogJunction that describes the week and its purpose.

What a joy to get to know the 2 other trainers for the state of PA - Ineavelle Ruiz, the Migrant Program Coordinator/Assistant at the Northeast Branch of the Reading Public Library in Berks County and Susana Baumann, the Director of LCSWorldwide Language and Cultural Services, a company she started in 1996 as a home-based part-time business, as well as the state coordinator, Claudia Koenig from Commonwealth Libraries. We've become quite the team getting everything together for the workshops in PA. Here we are with Yolanda Cuesta, the Institute Facilitator/Curriculum Developer:
