Greetings fellow TESOL teacher educators!

I am honored and excited about serving our organization as the Interest Section chair and am grateful to our wonderful volunteer team for making all the "behind the scenes" activities happen! Now that I am in this hot seat, I can see that all the many aspects of being part of TESOL TEIS were a result of a volunteer's time, talent, and energy. The diverse offerings of sessions at the convention, the newsletter articles, the updates via our listserv—all are due to our commitment to advancing the work of teacher education in the field of TESOL.

This year we are offering a series of short webinars on topics of interest, generated by you on the listserv and at our convention business meeting, and are looking to publish your voices in our newsletter. Get involved and connected either way this year! And make sure to put our business meeting on your calendar for the 2017 convention so we can meet in person. It all comes down to our human connections, and that makes the work full of joy and learning.

Write to me with any suggestions or ideas, and I will look forward to ongoing communication as we enter 2017 together! It's a dynamic time to be part of teacher education, and our work preparing educators of English learners is more essential than ever.

Thank you for what you do and for your involvement with TESOL TEIS!
