  • At my school in Takoma Park, there were two representatives from England visiting to see how American schools worked…maybe they visited here as well?

  • Pero en correcto español, se diría: “Bienvenidos maestros de Inglaterra”

  • Time for PoPville to learn Spanglish!

  • Dear Pop, thank you for bringing this as this sign brought me to tears recently. Cervantes is rolling around in his grave.

  • edit: bringing this UP.

  • My guess, and I know people at this school, many of them competent, educated speakers of Spanish, is that they are welcoming teachers from the British School in DC. Marie Reed has a dual immersion English/SPanish program and does a Japanese lesson study to improve their math teaching. Maybe this is why teachers from the British School are coming.

  • I saw the “Welcome British Teachers!” sign go up last week. I guess they didn’t stay long!

  • Last year at about this same time, a large group of British teachers came to the think-tank that I used to work at for a talk about transatlantic relations. I think that they are invited every year through a Department of State International Visitors program administered by the Meridien House to have a look around and get to know our city, our educational systems and us!
