Time flies! Where did April and May go?!
I’m popping in to apologize to our followers for our abrupt disappearance in May. The semester got away from us as our attention was diverted to local campus and community happenings, including the graduation of Charla, our dedicated blogger! She will be missed!!
We also offer our grateful thanks to blogger Kalyn, who’s wrapped up her time with us here at Vamos a Leer.
Next term you’ll find us back in full force with new and familiar faces. I’ll keep the new contributors a surprise, but know that you’ll still hear plenty from me, Katrina, and Alice.
In the meantime, Alice is learning Portuguese in Brazil and Katrina and I have a lot distracting us over the summer, including our first international trip for educators (we’re headed to Havana in July with teachers from Florida and New Mexico). When we’re not all traveling the world, we’ll be hard at work planning the 2016-17 selections for Vamos a Leer. If you have suggestions for which titles we should read or feature, let us know in the comments. We’d love to hear your ideas as we continue our pursuit of engaging, diverse books for the classroom!
We’ll be back with you in August, if not sooner. Enjoy your summer in the meantime!
p.s. Here’s a photo of the wildflowers outside our campus office. Summer is officially here and it’s blooming!
