Reminder — Call for Proposals

Hello fellow educators! I know we are in the chaos of classes ending, summer classes beginning, etc, but please, if you could take a moment out of your hectic schedules to consider submitting a proposal for Conn TESOL 2017, it would be greatly appreciated. So often we don’t realize our classroom practices, which are so “normal” and familiar to us, may be very novel and innovative to our peers. Peer observation and collaboration have been shown to be some of the most effective types of professional development, as well as educator led initiatives. So please, think about what makes you and your students inspired, passionate, and successful and if those practices could transfer to sharing in a presentation to fellow educators.

The full guidelines are linked below but the call for proposals is actually quite simply — a short synopsis of your presentation is all that’s needed now. Then you have the next few, hopefully quieter, months  to pull it together.

Now more than ever, we need our community to come together and share our outstanding work that we do for our students. Thank you!
