    Hi everyone! My name is Miguel and I'm from Ecuador. I've been involved in education for more than five years and I'm eager to keep learning and becoming my best version to help my students live great learning experiences. Besides teaching English, I also lead a teacher-training program at Enseña Ecuador, a country member of Teach for All network. I'm totally open to meet new colleagues who are also passionate about education from all over the world!

    Hi, Miguel,

    Welcome to TESOL International! I hope you have a fulfilling professional experience as a member of TESOL. You sound like you might be interested in joining the Higher Ed Interest Section. They have many events and webinars during the year. You might also like to join the English as a Foreign Language Interest Section. I have been a member and over the years officer of this Interest Section which has members from all over the world. We say it is like the United Nations. This coming week a New Members Welcome is being held and hope you can attend. I will be one of the hosts on this virtual event. Information will be posted on myTESOL.

    Once again, welcome to TESOL, Miguel.
