We just returned from SCOLT 2019 in Myrtle Beach where AWLA was well-represented with lots of members in attendance and several members presenting. Our current Teacher of the Year Hannah Sullivan impressed attendees with her interview, recorded teaching philosophy, and enthusiasm for language education. Our Best of AWLA presenter Liza Heath presented to a packed audience with Keep Them Talking! Moving Beyond Memorized Vocabulary.
Of notable interest for the organization was the Regional Leadership Workshop where the topic was Sustainable Engagement in Leadership; several of the ideas explored there will take effect at the AWLA Spring Board Meeting.
Preparations for SCOLT/AWLA 2020 in Mobile are underway as well. Downtown Mobile will be the venue and, along with an informative program, there will be lots of things to do within walking distance of the Convention Center and conference hotel. Be sure to make plans to attend!
