    Dear Tatyana ~

    Hello and welcome to TESOL! Thank you for introducing yourself; I'm very pleased to meet you.

    Your work with the International School Partnership Program (ISPP) sounds fascinating; I'd love to hear more about it.

    I live in the New York City area. I'm excited to know that you and your students visited my state and my country. I hope you enjoyed them and learned a lot.

    Have a great convention!

    All best wishes,
    Laura

    Welcome Tatyana!  During your membership, I hope you will consider joining some of TESOL's Interest Sections or Professional Learning Networks.  These groups will allow you to meet other teachers who work with a similar learner population and others who share your interests.  In your profile, you mentioned conducting teacher training workshops.  The Teacher Educator Interest Section may be relevant for you.

    Best wishes.

    Hi Tatyana,

    Welcome to the TESOL Community, we are so glad to have you. While attending an in-person convention is an amazing thing to do. I love that so many more people from around the world can join this virtual one. I hope you have looked into the TESOL Interest Sections. They are a great way to connect to others who teacher in similar situations or those who share your professional passion.
    All the best,
    Brooke
