I’m looking forward to the TESOL conference in New York April 2-5th, 2008. It’s always a great time to reconnect with old friends, meet new friends, and get caught up on the latest happenings in the field. If you’ll be there, feel free to join me for the presentations listed below. Handouts and PowerPoints will be available the day after the presentation. Check the Resources page for teachers, trainers, and consultants. I hope to see you there.
