Statement of Candidacy

I am Pamela Ottenheimer, candidate for Secondary (9-12) representative to the AATSP Executive Council. He sido amiga o socia de AATSP desde 1971, como estudiante y profesora de español. Enseñé por 36 años en una escuela secundaria pública en Pensilvania, en Council Rock, un distrito de 15 escuelas y 12 mil estudiantes. Recibí Maestría de Educación en 1987, Diploma Internacional de Traducción en 1988, DELE Superior en 1997 y completé los cursos para Diploma de Maestría como Profesora de Español en Granada en 2009. Serví como asesora del capítulo Tirso de Molina de SHH por 15 años, y asistí a una gran cantidad de congresos de AATSP tanto en EEUU como en el extranjero.

Por 15 años, serví como Coordinadora de idiomas extranjeros en Council Rock: así ejercí de líder de currículum para los 34 otros profesores de idiomas. Me reuní regularmente con grupos pequeños y grandes, guiándoles sobre métodos, tecnología y desarrollo curricular. Bajo mi liderazgo, el distrito aumentó de 15 nuevas clases, inclusive tres clases de AP. Fui responsable por la construcción y defensa del presupuesto anual de los idiomas, algo que podía llegar a incluir 100 mil dólares para los programas. He sido socia y presentadora de PA-NJ Alliance of World Language Teachers , un grupo que apoya la interacción entre las escuelas secundarias y las universidades.

In short, I am very interested to continue working for language teachers. I see the importance of continuing improvement of course articulation and communication among teachers, K-16. I support the development of a consistent, streamlined and affordable oral proficiency tool which can follow students’ progress. I also support increased scholarship offerings for students. I ask for your consideration; I would be honored to represent you as your newest high school level communicator and promoter of languages.

Gracias.
