    Hello everyone! How was your first day of teaching/back to school? Some of you are still on a holiday break. Please share your professional plans or goals for the year. I am currently working on becoming ACUE certified.

    Hello Yuliya and Everyone:

    I completed the ACUE program last year through my university and really got a lot out of it.  For those of you are unfamiliar with ACUE, it offers a 25-module program for effective teaching online.  However, it also provides a number of free webinars on online teaching and inclusive classrooms.  You can access the webinars here:

    My professional goal this year is to write more blogs and articles to share my ideas with colleagues.  Do you also share this goal?  All of TESOL's Interest Sections publish newsletters where you can present your research and your teaching tips.  Look on the page of the individual Interest Sections to get contact information for the newsletter editors, and you, too, can be a published author!
