    Hello everybody,

    I'm Mohamed Ramadan from Egypt. I'm working as an ELT Supervisor for ministry of education in Egypt. In this post which is the first one to the community, I just wanted to greet you all and express my pleasure to be a TSOL member. I'm looking forward to connecting with as many of you as possble to exchange ideas, steps and procedures that help teachers do well in real classrooms.

    I'm interested in teacher professional development and I believe that a professional teacher should never stop learning. That's the main reason for my decision to found a blog for EFL/ESL teachers' PD:  I regularly publish articles, lesson plans, mini-courses, worksheets ... etc for EFL/ESL teachers to improve their performance in the classroom and gain more control over their job. I'd be grateful for you if you get a look at it and let me know your thought.

    Finally, I'd like to thank you all and wish you all of the best.

    Mohamed Ramadan

    Hello Mohamed:

    Great to have you as a colleague in the TESOL International Association!  It sounds like you have extensive knowledge to share.  I wonder if you have any tips for the new teachers out there.  For example, what is the biggest mistake you see novice teachers make in the classroom?

    Given your experience in teacher training and supervision, you might be interested to join TESOL's Teacher Educator Interest Section (TEIS).  You can find this community under the "Communities" tab at the top of this page and "Interest Sections."  Your TESOL membership allows you to join this and any of our other communities of practice.

    With regards,

    Hello Mohamed, welcome to TESOL. I recently did an online presentation in the MENA (Middle East North Africa) region. It was about critical thinking. I would love to see more posts about the PD needs of English teachers in Egypt. I look forward to your participation in our discussions.
