This month we celebrate Hispanic Heritage month. From September 15 to October 15, we  highlight the achievements of Hispanic scientists, artists, musicians, politicians, and more.

Hispanic Heritage Month's official website has a page devoted to teachers. It lists resources for use in the classroom from the Library of Congress, Smithsonian Institution, National Gallery of Art, and more.

The NIE teacher site has new curriculum guides available for download to NIE teachers, including "High Tech Heroes: Hispanic Explorers in Science" a bilingual resource and activity guide that highlights the achievements of Eloy Rodriguez, Ellen Ochoa, Mario Molina, and more. You can download the guide here.

Welcome back to school!
