LETTER FROM THE EDITORS

Demetria Li


Lauren Lovvorn


Greetings SPLISers,

We hope to find you all well and productive as we quickly approach the end of another year.

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, we have a new editor on board! We are excited to be working together to present to you our fall issue of As We Speak. We have a few articles coming straight from the authors’ 2014 TESOL presentations in Portland as well as a couple of other excellent contributions.

As always, we want to remind everyone to share the wonderful things you do in your classroom or the great research you are working on with your fellow SPLIS community in our upcoming issues of As We Speak. We will be accepting submissions for the Spring 2015 newsletter soon! The deadline for intent to submit is December 1, and articles must be received by February 1. We as an Interest Section are only as strong as our members make us, so let’s continue to grow together.

Our best to you all,
Demetria Li and Lauren Lovvorn
Co-editors of the SPLIS Newsletter

Her attendance at the TESOL convention in Dallas (2013) inspired her to get involved with the greater TESOL community and created a particular interest in speaking/listening and International Teaching Assistant Program (ITAP)

Lauren Lovvorn has an MA in applied linguistics from Georgia State University and is currently an instructor in the Intensive English Program at the University of Alabama. Her interest in pronunciation began her first semester of graduate school, and since then she has taught several workshops and presented at various conferences on the topic.
