The annual Wisconsin State Spanish Pronunciation Contest Championships is becoming a tradition in South Milwaukee. For those not familiar, it’s a contest where students study a fragment of text—this year and last year, it was a poem fragment—and practice pronouncing it exactly correctly.

Today on the podcast, we will hear from four students who participated and got a first- or second-place medal for mastering the poem. Then we’ll hear from Cheryl Caruso on three decades of teaching a global language – Spanish – and how, during her career, language education is taught and how students are different today than before.

An annual tradition is about to happen at Rawson Elementary School, and that’s why third-grade teacher Bill Gaynor has student art collected from the entire year in every corner of his classroom.

Soon that artwork will be gently placed into a box, wrapped with care by students, police officers, firefighters, and other volunteers, and delivered with notes of care and encouragement to area cancer patients urging them to keep their spirits up and fight the Cancer Bully.

On this episode, we’ll hear from Mr. Gaynor about the cancer box project and talk a little bit about his career as an educator and who his students are – a fitting tribute during Teacher Appreciation Week.
