    A Message from our new Spanish teacher, Mrs. Diaz!
    "My name is Laura Diaz, and I am the new Spanish teacher. I'm really excited to be part of the Endeavor family, and I'm looking forward to getting to know you all. I'm originally from Peru, and I moved to North Carolina 5 years ago. In Peru I was an ESL teacher, and I worked with different age groups. Five years ago, I was given the opportunity to come to the U.S. and work as a Spanish Immersion Teacher in an elementary school, and I loved it! A year ago, I moved to Raleigh for my husband's job, and now we enjoy this city. We decided to buy a house, and now we have a 5-month old baby named Wilson, who was born in Raleigh. Our family will return to Peru in December to celebrate our wedding with our families, so I will be out the last week of December. For this reason, I want to give each of you early wishes for a wonderful holiday and winter break."

    Student Assistance Program Update
    Susan White, SAP Coordinator 
    I had the opportunity to attend a great conference this week, "Smart but Scattered."  There was a lot of  valuable information regarding what the speaker referred to as the "hidden curriculum."  The life skills that are necessary for all students to be successful in life. Skills like problem solving, conflict resolution, flexibility, time management and planning just to name a few.  Ironically,  so much about the way our world is currently structured prevents us from learning some of these important life skills.  So if we don't acquire them naturally, how will they be taught? Who will be the teachers? One particular skill that caught my attention is the ability to delay gratification, or simply stopping and waiting..  This is a skill typically developed at an early age but somewhat hindered by our environment where no one waits for anything.  The speaker suggested looking for opportunities to teach waiting.  For example, "Yes you can watch TV but let's wait until after dinner."  Adults and children alike could stand to practice patience, stopping and waiting.  We know that valuable things happen when we are trained to wait.  Once waiting has been established (and research shows it can be taught) it transfers to the ability for students to think before they act, and to critically evaluate situations before they make decisions.  Take a look at this famous research study that further exemplifies the value of waiting.  I will be spending some time reflecting how to make this a practice in my own life.  Have a great week!
