Message from NYS TESOL President
Greetings, members!  I’m Constance Dziombak, your new President. One of my goals this year is to enhance and expand NYS TESOL’s Web 2.0 forums , so that you can participate more directly in the NYS TESOL community  by  getting and  exchanging information and  discussing the major issues which affect us and our students. I hope you’ll find this issue of Dialogue interesting and stimulating!  Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for the New Year 2010!

New York State TESOL 39th Annual Conference – Plentiful

The 39th Annual Conference on November 13 and 14 in White Plains, New York was the destination spot for TESOLers from around the state. The conference offered educators a two-day stimulus package with a full array of speakers, concurrent sessions, and exhibitors.

Friday, November 13
On the first morning, NYS TESOLers from all regions filled the lobby to pick up their conference badges, register on-site, meet colleagues for the continental breakfast, or find seats in the big ballroom for the day’s first event before spreading out to attend any one of the 120 presentations over the next two days.
