The Teacher Education Students (TEP) at the University of St. Martin were treated to a workshop by Judy Condon on Tuesday, April 7, 2009. They are enrolled in the children’s literature course taught by USM Instructor, Patti Maier. Mrs. Condon used interactive techniques to explain ways to effectively teach spelling to elementary school students. Mrs. Condon travels from her home in Virginia to stay for various periods of time at her home on St. Maarten. She gave a similar workshop to Public Education teachers in November. The education teachers were each given a set of spelling reference books donated by Curriculum Associates.
