The 42nd Annual National Association for Bilingual Education (NABE) Conference held in Orlando, Florida was meaningful! Dr. Jose Cruz, PIBBA International Historian; Ron Laguana; Jimmy Teria; and Dr. Rivera had the honor of presenting culturally-relevant papers at the conference hosted February 7-9, 2013 at the Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World. Professor Rosa Salas Palomo served as the Chair during the Asian Pacific Islanders Special Interest Group session with the help of Co-Chair Dr. Shu-yuan Lin. Although the Guam Delegation was a small group, they proudly represented the island amongst the others who presented.  Their presentations focused on Using Differentiated Instruction to Build Schema of ELLs in Guam, The Magic of Sustained Micronesian Regional Cooperation and Collaboration on Languages and Cultures, and The Legacy of the Navajo Code Talkers in the War in the Pacific (1942-1945).  Other highlights of the conference included the following: Global Perspectives on Bilingual Education: Implications for the U.S., Achieving Academic Control of Two Languages: Insights from the Past and Present in Looking Forward, Puente de Hozho Bilingual School: A Bridge to Beauty, Intergenerational Trauma, Language Revitalization and Indigenous Knowledge: How Are All Of These Related?, Bridging Indigenous "Ways of Knowing" into Classroom Science: The Loloma Project, and Best Practices Interdisciplinary Vocabulary Development Using the Rule of 3.
