Nebraska Association of Teachers of German Update

(Submitted by Pat Branson, Nebraska Association of Teachers of German)

Guten Tag! Grüß Gott!
Welcome to a new school year! The NATG board would love to challenge all German teachers to become a member of AATG/NATG this year. Remember—to be an NATG member, all you have to do is join AATG. We know some of you feel your PLC in your district is enough, but we encourage you to join us and participate in our activities this year! We’d love to see some new faces and have you share your great ideas with us!
