Note from the Editor, March 2013

Welcome to the new website of TESL NS. A lot of great ideas have been realized in the hard work and applied tech savvy of executive committee member Jennifer MacDonald. Especially, check out the google maps feature created to help us visualize where we are represented as ESL professionals throughout the province. Thank you, Jennifer!

To coincide with the launch of the new site, we have invited your attention to a poll of your interests in topics for the spring mini conference. Please share your feedback by participating in this quick membership poll so that we can get to work on the planning.

This website also introduces an revamped concept for the TESL NS newsletter—we will be using a blog to share ideas, upcoming events,  professional development opportunities, literature and resource reviews and relevant and interesting updates. Past newsletters are still available to browse on the new website: Jennifer has archived them for us. We hope this new format will help members stay current at their convenience. Even more so, we hope the blog format will encourage members to share more articles, reviews, updates and links. We welcome new ideas and feedback.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely yours,

Jessie Crabill, Editor
