It’s also when many thousands of people flock to the famous northern New Mexico chapel called El Santuario de Chimayó.

Teacher evaluations in New Mexico saw a handful of tweaks last week issued by Governor Martinez. Changes included reduced emphasis on test scores as evaluation criteria, an increase in penalty-free sick days, and more. These changes were recommended to the Governor's office by teachers' advocacy group Teach Plus. But some educators are skeptical that the changes will improve their situation. KSFR's Hannah Colton spoke to educators on both side of the issue.
