Spanish Fork Junior High English teacher, Rillene Nielsen, had the distinguished opportunity of presenting at the NCTE Annual Convention held in Las Vegas, Nevada. During a November 17 Saturday breakout session, Nielsen and her co-presenters led a philosophical discussion, encouraging English teachers to see themselves as “Englishists” whose specialty lies in the literature they love. Participants considered the different ways scientists, historians, or even artists might read and interpret texts, then juxtaposed those practices with those of the devoted “Englishist.”

Over 100 ninth-grade World Studies students visited the Krishna Temple this past week.  The students were able to experience a buffet lunch, tame the llamas, feed the fish, stretch their muscles with yoga, and learned about another culture. 

Thank all the people at our own local Krishna Temple for your wonderful hospitality and generosity.  The students will never forget their experiences there!
