Kentucky Readers: ***Time Sensitive***


In a few weeks, the Kentucky TESOL conference will take place in Louisville. There are still many open spots for poster sessions and presentations. If you submit a proposal, you will have a high chance of being accepted. So, here is the deal: Submit a poster on a topic we covered in a past class or a best practice in your school. Or on a legal/title 3 issue. I can assist you with feedback. This is an awesome leadership opportunity for you!

Best wishes,

Dr. Broady
