Fiesta, Inc. is a 501c3 organization that seeks “to educate the mainstream public about the many different Hispanic countries and cultures through the best of art, music, dance, and food.” Part of Fiesta’s goal as a festival and as an organization has always been to provide Hispanic students with scholarships to help them further their education in Alabama.  


Alabama World Language teacher, Hannah Rae Joseph, will be presenting at the ACTFL conference in November!

Her presentation covers using ACTFL Standards to make assessments more authentic, engaging and easy to grade! She discusses ACTFL standards-based assessments that reduce stress and that students have dared to call "fun!"

Congratulations Hannah!

Hannah Rae's longstanding record of service to the profession includes founding the N. E. W. B. I.
