District Translator/Interpreter to be Honored at Countywide Event

Alfonso Erdmann, who has worked as a Spanish language interpreter and translator for the district for more than eight years, will be honored on May 13 at the 12th Annual Biliteracy Symposium, an event sponsored by the San Diego County Office of Education. This event recognizes individuals who make significant contributions in promoting biliteracy for students. Alfonso has a gift for simultaneous interpretations from English to Spanish and Spanish to English that is second to none. He regularly serves as interpreter for monthly District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) meetings; he can also be seen at other district meetings, such as the Board of Education.
