  1. You should know why I want those letters sent to DPS. I have gotten some samples from those in our group who have already sent or composed them. Unbelievable. Here is an example and I post this without Robert’s permission because every time I have ever ask him permission to publish anything he has said yes (which explains a lot of the richness in our Primers section, half of which is from him):
    Dear Superintendent Boasberg:
    I am the Chair of the World Languages Department for Pacifica High School in Garden Grove, California.
    It has been my pleasure and privilege to learn from Diana Noonan about Best Practices in teaching World Languages. Over the years I have benefited greatly from her presentations at conferences and workshops. In addition, I have followed and been inspired by Ms Noonan’s work in teacher training at Denver Public Schools. Diana Noonan is one of those rare administrators who understands Second Language Acquisition as well as sound pedagogical practices. Even rarer is her ability to combine the two in a teacher training program that is the envy of world language teachers throughout the US and abroad. I, for one, have encouraged my district administrators to contact Ms Noonan so that we may benefit from wisdom and experience.
    Thus it came as quite a shock to learn that Ms Noonan’s position as World Languages Coordinator for Denver Public Schools has been posted as an open position. This can only mean that she has been let go. Ms Noonan’s knowledge, wisdom, expertise, and experience benefit teachers and students alike in an exceptional way, and her influence (and the reputation of DPS) extends far beyond the confines of the city of Denver or the state of Colorado. For the sake of what is truly best for students, I strongly encourage you to reconsider this action and retain Diana Noonan as Denver Public Schools’ World Languages Coordinator.
    Thank you for your attention to my request.
