Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who joined us this weekend for another successful AZTESOL State Conference. Earlier this past spring, and for the safety of our members and communities, we made the difficult decision to switch our 2020 state conference from a face-to-face conference to be held in Yuma to a fully online conference and together we exceeded all expectations! We had record breaking attendance with over 330 participants for a full weekend of presentations, workshops, sessions, fairs, and networking! We welcomed participants from all across Arizona and the US, as well as Sonora, Mexico. We will continue to post conference materials and recordings of sessions on the Canvas site for all participants as well.

Thank you to our Keynote speaker, Dr. Kate Seltzer, and our featured speakers, Dr. Melissa Castillo and Eileen Nguyen, for their poignant and insightful contributions. Thank you to the AZTESOL conference planning committee and Board members for their hard work in planning and putting together the conference. And finally, an extra special thank you to all of our new and continuing members for being involved with AZTESOL and sharing their love of learning and teaching, and dedication to furthering the field of English language learning for students in Arizona and the whole world.
