    Dear TESOL Colleagues,
    I am in the process of creating a network of teachers who work with English Learners (ELs) who have had interrupted schooling.  My passion is working with ELs who have experienced interrupted schooling.  My ultimate goal is to improve education for these students and the way teachers are prepared to work with them.  
    I have included a link below to a flyer that contains all details about this project.  My plan is to start in February.  Please feel free to share this with any of your colleagues who work with ELs. I am looking for a wide variety of teachers from all over the U.S. to provide many perspectives.  There is a survey inside the document below to complete if you or other teachers you know have interest in participating.  
    This project will be conducted fully in an online setting.  We will engage in weekly online communications and write a bi-weekly journal entry that is shared among the group to help us identify and tackle common needs and experiences.  As part of this study our group will meet approximately 4 times online synchronously for one hour to discuss and support each other with current situations, needs, and successes when working with our English Learners.
    Take care,
