    Hello, TESOL friends and colleagues! The PK12 Interest Section welcomes all! Our group is not just for educators serving PK12 students. It's also for educators serving their adult caretakers, teacher educators, and all who might one day receive PK12 youth as young adult students in higher education, technical, and community programs. It's also for the administrators, tech experts, materials writers, and retired educators. Every professional in the TESOL field contributes to the success of PK12 students, families, and educators. 

    UPCOMING WEBINAR

    We're excited to announce that our next webinar will be on Saturday, 16 October at 3 pm US Eastern time. We are honored to have Luciana C. de Oliveira and Ruslana Westerlund presenting about their latest work, A Functional Approach to Language Development for Dual Language Learners. Stay tuned for registration and more info.

    Hi Stacy, thank you for sharing. Are your members mostly ESL teachers here in the US?

    Hi! Thanks for the opportunity to share! Many are in the US but they are also all across the globe. I just did a member map for RCIS this week. I will do one for PK12 today, too.

    We have always hoped to hear more from our colleagues outside of the US. Hopefully we can find some new ways to learn more about and highlight issues outside of the US.

    Dear Stacy ~

    Thank you so much for the RCIS member map.

    In a text-heavy world, it's really fun and refreshing to see data displayed visually.

    Thanks again!

    Best wishes,
    Laura
