What a great weekend! AWLA was well represented at this year's SCOLT conference in Atlanta. Members were presenting, leading, mentoring, chatting, sharing and learning. Visit our Facebook page to see photos and posts as well as the hashtag #SCOLT18. AWLA Parliamentarian, Sandrine Hope and I attended the SCOLT leadership luncheon on behalf of AWLA and found it to be quite an engaging afternoon discussing how we can recruit, retain and encourage foreign language teachers. This topic is building on an area of focus by ACTFL too so there is much ado going on to tackle the problem of lack of foreign language educators. See my previous post from ACTFL in November to learn about some of the initiatives.
