Brandee Mau (Universität Oldenburg, Germany, BA German and Spanish, BA Secondary Education, University of Wyoming; MA Curriculum and Instruction, University of Wyoming) teaches all levels of German at Campbell County High School in Gillette, Wyoming. Since 2001, she also serves her district as the K-12 Foreign Language Curriculum Facilitator. In that capacity, she writes curriculum and assessments, facilitates collaboration among language teachers, and supports teachers in the classroom. She serves Wyoming language teachers through participation on several task forces and committees, namely the state standards revisions and University-School Partnership, which has been tasked with improving communication among state language educators and articulation from secondary to post-secondary language programs. She is a past president of the Wyoming Foreign Language Teachers’ Association, executive board member, past board member of PNCFL as well as their Teacher of the Year. She will be representing our region this year at ACTFL. When the College Board began the revisions to the AP Language exams with its World Language Commission, Brandee served as a commissioner. Later, as the process advanced, she was a member of the AP German Curriculum Development and Assessment committee and now sits on the AP German Test Development committee. She frequently presents at state, regional, and ACTFL conferences, as well as the National AP conferences. She has contributed articles to several language publications and is a graduate of the Western Initiative for Language Leadership (WILL). Most recently Brandee became the Project Leader for the Global Language Educator Network (GLEN) in collaboration with the Center for Applied Second Language Studies (CASLS) at the University of Oregon. She facilitated two week-long summer sessions designed for language teachers intent on improving their practice in Oregon and California this summer. With each responsibility, Brandee looks to the impact it will have not just on her students, but for all language students within the influence of the task.
