    After teaching ESL for years at the university and community college level, an opportunity opened to transition into a language program administration role. Transitioning from faculty to administration is a complicated endeavor and requires careful consideration. Now, after having worked as a Language Program Director for over a decade, as well as the lead administrator over the university international office, and now as a chair of an academic doctoral program, I have recommendations to share in this webinar with faculty looking to transition into administration, particularly with those looking ahead at the challenging job market, considering a slight career change, or just wanting to understand a bit more about what it takes to lead a language program.


    Dr. Suzanne Panferov Reese is the Chair of the Ph.D. program, Second Language Acquisition, and Teaching, and teaches in Public and Applied Humanities at the University of Arizona. Previously, she served as Associate Vice President for Global Initiatives and directed the Center for English as a Second Language. She teaches courses in language program administration and presents professionalism and leadership. Additionally, Panferov Reese has served as the President of TESOL International and UCIEP.


    All members of TESOL International Association are welcome to attend TEIS webinars. We welcome engagement with any member of TESOL at any time.
