Bridging the Divide: Communication, Compassion & Community for ELs.
With changes in education, government, and not to mention our state's EL population, this is sure to be a popular conference! As we are a TESOL affiliate, our mission and values align:
"TESOL is an international association of professionals advancing the quality of English language teaching through professional development, research, standards, and advocacy."
VATESOL is excited to feature a host location that represents our K-12 teachers for the first time in awhile. With numerous colleges and universities also in close proximity, we hope our 2017 conference New Kent will break attendance records!
New Kent is halfway between Richmond and Williamsburg, VA. The county is close to many major airports: Richmond International Airport is just 10 minutes away, Newport News-Williamsburg International Airport is 30 minutes away, and Norfolk International Airport is 60 minutes.
