    Hi Everybody!

    I am Shpresa Delija, from Albania, a very small but a stunning place to visit. I have been a TESOL member since 2006. TESOL International is the hub where all the teachers of English feel comfortable and inspired for their teaching.

    Hello Shpresa,

    Welcome to TESOL! We are so glad you're here. I'm so happy to see Albania represented in our community. I was an English Langauge Fellow in Kosovo from 2017-2019 and made a few trips to Tiranna. You might know Jolene McConnell, she was the ELF in Tiranna 2017-2018. We are great friends.
    Anyway, please reach out if you have questions. I hope you can meet other teachers and use all the resources available.
    All the best,
    Brooke Leach Grable

    Shpresa Delija is one of my favorite TESOL leaders in the world.  You've given much to me, to your students, and to TESOL, Shpresa.  I'm glad others on this list are getting to know you a bit more now.

    Hi Cristina:
    I'm glad you feel that your participation has been worthwhile.  Teachers can learn a lot from each other.  I'm sure that you have knowledge to share with us, too.  For example, do you have a favorite activity that you like to do with your classes?  If so, please tell us about it!

    Thanks for your beloved words, Nikki! 

    I really like to bring gamificatiion to my class, not just for the fact that my students like games or/& quiz, but I can see real engagement in learning. At the moment, we had just started remote class here in Brazil and I confess that I am still learning how to work with ClassDojo, voki and even flipgrid which is pretty new to me ! I used to work with printables and boards in class. Anyway,
    amoung all ,I should say that Kahoot is helping a lot! Bringing happiness to all my work .

    Hi Nasreen -
    Welcome and Ahlan wa Sahlan !!
    Nice to meet you in the TESOL Lounge. I have such fond memories of Egypt where I worked for several years with various English language programs and did so much with the Ministry of Education (RELO/US Embassy but now retired).  It's great to see you in the TESOL family. All the best in your work with the Ministry!
