Dr. Betty Green
Dr. Betty Green of Daytona State’s School of Education is the editor of the Florida Foreign Language Journal a peer-reviewed publication of the Florida Foreign Language Association.
The publication comes out several times a year and is created by and distributed to secondary and post-secondary foreign language teachers. Its objective is to serve as a vehicle for expression by teachers, students and the greater general public who have an interest in furthering the instruction and knowledge of foreign languages. In Volusia County Public Schools alone, there are 99 different languages. Next fall, a Russian charter school will be started in Flagler County, according to Les Potter, chair of Daytona State’s School of Education. Potter recently published an article in the Journal entitled “Multicultural Issues for the Florida Middle School Administrator.” For more information concerning the journal, please email Dr. Green or call (386) 506-3091.
Daytona State music student Raymond Milcarsky recently won the brass division of the Florida College System Activities Association Artist Competition in conjunction with that same organization’s annual Winter Music Symposium held this year at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. In addition to the immediate honor of being selected a winner from a pool of up to 20 other competitors from the Florida State College System, Raymond will receive a scholarship, through the organization, to a Florida state university of his choice to continue his pursuit of a music degree.
