Ocean City Schools Earn Top World Languages Program Honor

first_imgThe Ocean City School District just received top honors as having the best World Languages Program in the state. New Jersey Teacher of the Year Amy Andersen’s American Sign Language course is one of the reasons, officials say. By Maddy VitaleThe Ocean City School District already has the top superintendent and top teacher in the state.Adding to a list of achievements, the district was selected by the New Jersey Department of Education as having the best World Languages Program in the state, one that will be used as a model for other districts over the next two years, explained Director of Academic Services Curt Nath.The district of 2,300 students offers Spanish, French, Italian, Latin, Greek, Spanish and American Sign Language. Across the district there are about a dozen world language teachers. Spanish is taught in both the Primary School and Intermediate School.“We have such a diversity of languages,” Nath said. “That is one of the benefits of our district and we are one of the few around that has the ASL program.”Nath, a high school Spanish teacher in the district for 12 years before becoming director of academics, said the district was notified Thursday of the honor and a congratulatory letter from the DOE just arrived.Over the next two years, representatives from school districts across the state can visit Ocean City and view the program.“If someone would like to improve their program or start one, they can use us as a resource,” Nath said.  The Ocean City School District has many top credits including, New Jersey Teacher of the Year Amy Andersen and New Jersey Superintendent of the Year Kathleen Taylor.Ocean City Schools Superintendent Kathleen Taylor said the district being selected as the best for World Languages is such an honor and a testament to the hard work of the teachers and Nath.The World Language award follows the selection of Taylor as New Jersey Superintendent of the Year and Ocean City High School American Sign Language teacher Amy Andersen as New Jersey Teacher of the Year.Nath, meanwhile, said it is a great honor for Ocean City to be named best World Languages program in the state, but noted it was not an easy process to win the award.The district began working on the required paperwork last year. The initial documents were sent to the DOE over the summer. In October and November, the DOE conducted phone interviews with school staff and students. In November and December, they did follow-up interviews. They also did site visits and observed the classrooms in the late fall and came back in February, Nath said.“It was an arduous and rigorous process. We had to send a series of documents to them and samples of our lesson plans, curriculum, assessments and students’ work,” Nath said. “They looked at everything.” While he didn’t know how many districts applied, a list of winning programs in the state will be listed on the DOE website soon, he said.Nath said he thinks he has a pretty good idea what makes the district’s World Languages program so special.“It is a commitment to the languages, which comes from the top down. For example, at the high school, we consider it one of our core subject matters – even though it isn’t,” Nath said. “We have an investment in it, an understanding of the importance of World Languages and how it can help our students across the boards.” Nath said the credit should go to the excellent teachers who continue to make an impact on the students. He said as an ASL instructor, Andersen has made such an impression on the students. “We have students graduating after taking two to three languages,” he said.  On June 11, the DOE will present the district with the honor during a ceremony in Trenton, Nath said. The district holds a bilingual education with such a high regard, students in the World Languages program can obtain a state seal of biliteracy. They must pass the oral proficiency interview, the same as is given by the state for World Language teachers, Nath explained.Nath said the importance of learning another language extends beyond helping with employment opportunities after school, it also helps with your native language.“Learning a new language has a huge and positive impact,” he said. “I think we do some great things to assist our students and our staff. The most exciting thing about working here is celebrating our successes, but we are already on to our next endeavor.”For more information call the school district at 609-399-1290.

Aromatic employees move over to Bakels

first_imgTwo of Aromatic’s UK employees will join parent company British Bakels as part of an integration plan due to be completed by the end of March 2012.General manager Stephen Smith and technical sales manager David Perkins will join the bakery ingredients manufacturer, following its acquisition of Aromatic AB, the Swedish supplier of bakery ingredients, in December last year.British Bakels said the only changes Aromatic’s customers would notice was with the placing of orders, distribution – where British Bakels’ existing delivery service will be used – and the payment of invoices.Paul Morrow, management board member of Bakels Worldwide and interim managing director of Bakels UK, said: “I am delighted that Stephen and David are joining the new operation. They have real expertise in the confectionery market and I know they will be a great benefit to British Bakels.”Both companies will continue to ship products from Sweden into the UK, as Bakels already has a manufacturing plant in the country. The new business will combine the shipment into a single carrier, giving benefits in order lead time and stock turnover.Bakels’ acquisition of the privately-owned family business was its second last year, after the global company purchased Swiss firm Nutribake AG in the first quarter.last_img read more
