TESOL International Convention 2013

During the annual convention in Dallas, Texas last week, I had a great time meeting new people, networking and engaging in professional development over the course of three days.  Of particular mention was the Plenary Speaker, John Hunter who shared his 4th grade classroom experiences via a wonderful documentary, "World Peace and Other 4th Grade Achievements," where language, literacy and most of all, critical thinking skills are developed naturally and the students assume various roles of global governance.  I truly look forward to meeting Mr. Hunter again and purchasing his book when he visits New York April 2, 2013 at Barnes & Noble on both the UWS and UES.
