    Greetings, fellow TESOL team members!

    It has been incredibly inspiring to see and hear from you all about the creative solutions you are taking to ensure that students continue to learn and grow, even as we navigate this new territory together.  What an awesome community to be a part of!

    For those of you looking to expand your professional learning during this period, please consider joining us for an online course: Mitigating Transition Shock in Diverse Classrooms.  Portions of this course were scheduled to be shared in three separate sections at TESOL 2020 Convention.

    View the course layout and lessons HERE.  The class is self-paced, with new chapters released every Wednesday and Saturday (approximately 1 month of learning/ 10 PD credit hours). For Colorado teachers, the course counts toward CLDE licensure requirements.

    We have received a number of partial scholarships for this course (available at registration on a first come, first served basis).  For TESOL members, we are pleased to offer an additional discount in light of the convention cancellation.  Please use the code TESOL to receive an additional 50% off the course.  The code may be combined with the scholarship pricing.  Discount code available for March, April and May enrollment only.

    The next course begins April 4.  Register HERE.

    For additional information about the presenter and/or instructional tools and resources, please visit diversifi-ED.com.

    Thanks to each of you for the extraordinary work that you do.

    Best,
