Salamanca Teachers Are Appointed To Committee

SALAMANCA — Two Salamanca City Central School district teachers have been appointed members of the Western/Buffalo Regional World Language Standards Review Committee.

Rachael Wolfe and Andrea Cooke, Seneca language and culture teachers for grades seven-12, will work with World Language educators, administrators, and other stakeholders in the region to provide recommended revisions to the World Language Standards that are submitted to the New York State Board of Regents.

“This is an awesome thing for us to be a part of,” Wolfe said. “It allows us to give input as to what the native languages standards are for New York State. We look forward to sharing the work we’ve done with our own curriculum, which is supported by our community needs.”

Wolfe and Cooke were selected from a pool of applicants by the Office of Bilingual Education and World Languages (OBEWL) and the World Language Leadership Team.

“To ensure that these committees will be well-positioned to reflect the view of the various stakeholders in New York, our team selected individuals that represent a wide array of languages, levels, and roles,” said Candace Black, Associate in Instructional Services for OBEWL.

The Western/Buffalo regional committee is one of seven in New York State. Committee members meet monthly for eight months for a half day from May to December 2019.
