    Our keynote speakers, Brenda Custodio and Judith O'Loughlin, will share with us specific strategies to support new arrivals from elementary age to adults, including suggestions for students with interrupted schooling and trauma-backgrounds. Both Brenda and Judith are past K-12 ESL classroom teachers who now focus on teacher training and professional development.

    Featured speaker Dr. William Stone, presently teaches in the Linguistics and TESOL programs at Northeastern Illinois University. He has extensive EFL/ESL teaching experience and has inspired many Graduate and Undergraduate students to excel in the TESOL profession.

    We look forward to seeing you there!
