This November 2017, I had the honor of being a featured speaker at our state conference, TexTESOL 2017. The event was a huge success- overall due to the hard work that the TESOL IV board put into organizing such a massive conference. The keynote speakers included THE Stephen Krashen and John Seidlitz, both heroes for me in the ELL world. If you've read any of my other posts, you know that I read and recommend several of John's books. And who in the ESL world doesn't love Krashen?
I'm including pictures from the conference. It was amazing to meet many of my Twitter friends fact to face and hug them tight. We have created a virtual bond through tweeting and supporting one another. And coming together for this event allowed us to connect in a way that technology and the virtual world cannot. I am grateful to TESOL IV for giving us this opportunity and to the colleagues who traveled from far places (Oregon, North Carolina, New York, etc.)
Thank you all! We learn and grow together!
