6 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE -- THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1988 POSITIVELY EDUCATION BY TOM MCNEEL, STATE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS Recently, I had the distinct pleasure of participating in a very special and wonderful event celebrating the 1989 Teacher of the Year. Selected by a statewide committee task to recognize and reinforce that talent. And for those students who find learning difficult due to poor self- concept, lack of self-discipline, or past academic failures, the teacher must county teacher of the year colleagues give concrete meaning to that term. I salute them all -- these marvelous champions of the classroom. ATTEND CONVENTION Marian Birdsall and Nancy Halstead-Gordon, special instructors in these fields in Jefferson County Schools, atte'a4,ed the annual national covention of th4merican Speech- Language-Hearing Association from November 18 through 21 in Boston, Mass. The duo joined 12,000 other speech- language-hearing professionals for the four-day convention program which included short courses, mini- seminars, technical sessions and scientific exhibits. as one of West Virginia's outstanding teachers, Kanawha County's Teresa Hardman truly illustrates excellence in her profession. Evidence of this can be seen not on- ly in her mathematics classroom at Nitro High School, but also in the pride her colleagues, parents and communi- ty members show toward her work. Consider these statements from her candidacy dossier: "Teaching is far more than presenting the subject mat- ter; we teachers must help students learn how to learn, and perhaps most important, we must convince our develop and/or seek out ways in which those students may be remediated so they, too, can be positive contributors in the learning process." --Gwen Rosenbluth, English teacher in Monongalia County: "There is no substitute for competence in one's teaching area. Staying current and having a large 'bag of tricks' for the classroom are obviously important. but if I do not know and relate to my students as individuals, I can't be an effective teacher." --Linda Staub, English/journalism teacher in Hampshire County: "The THE EQUITABLE FINANCIAL COMPANIES FILLING YOUR NEEDS FOR 129 YEARS Life Insurance Health Insurance Investments Mutual Funds Retirement Plans Personal Analysis The Equitable Life Assurance Society, N.Y., N.Y.

CHRYSLER BOLIVAR-HARPERS FERRY One never knows who or what will show up at Story Hour at the Bolivar- Harpers Ferry Library on Thursdays. On November 17, Judy Carrigan, one of the Story Hour mothers, brought Bonnie, a cross between a Nubian and Alpine goat. Bonnie was five weeks old and entertained the children in the backyard of the library for an hour. She is still on a bottle, so all of the books were safe. The children heard a short talk on animal behavior and care. A full-length movie, "Brother from Another Planet", will be shown free on Wednesday, December 14, at 8 p.m. America's leading independent film- maker, John Sayles, creates a hilarious story about a man from space who accidentally lands in Harlem. This is a science fiction film that ran in New York for over a year to sell-out crowds. The Bolivar-Harpers Ferry library will be closed on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. MARY ALBERTSON AT LITERACY CONFAB Mary Albertson, of Harpers Ferry, recently attend the annual conference of Literacy Volunteers of America, Inc., held in Albuquerque, N.M. She was among 1,029 delegates from throughout the United States to attend the three-day conference, which featured lectures and workshops for professional and volunteer teachers, tutors and administrators who offer literacy services to adults and teens. Also attending were literacy students- -adults and teens who have learned to read or to speak conversational English through LVA programs. Keynote speaker at the conference was Walter Anderson, editor of Parade magazine. Other special guests include Wallace "Famous" Amos, LVA's national spokesperson, and Ruth Colvin, LVA's founder. A let- ter from the new First Lady, Barbara Bush, was read. Founded in 1962, Literacy Volunteers of America has grown in 2(; years from a single chapter in Syracuse, N.Y., to a national organiza- tion with over 3,25 affiliates in 35 states. Currently, more than 28,000 adults and teens are being tutored in basic literacy or English as a second language by over 24,000 volunteers. LVA features an individualized, needs- oriented approach which focuses on each student's personal goals. Mary Albertson attended the con- ference as a delegate of the Eastern Panhandle Literacy Volunteers. She is a member of its board and librarian at the Bolivar-Harpers Ferry Library.
