Message From the President


Embracing the Past – Planning for the Future

Welcome to CATESOL!  As the largest organization in California and Nevada representing teachers of English language learners at all levels, we are excited to begin this new year.  Reinvigorated by our annual conference held last month in Anaheim, the Board is energized and ready to start working.  Our theme for next year’s conference is Embracing the Past – Planning the Future.  Indeed, this is the theme for our year as we begin the process of taking an in-depth look at our organization.  Inspired by our parent organization, TESOL, which is heading into its 50th year, we will engage in examination of our structures, policies, and procedures helping to ensure that CATESOL remains a healthy, vital organization. 

But we can’t do it alone.  CATESOL, as a volunteer organization, is member driven.  Indeed, our members are our greatest asset!  Without them, we have no organization.  Thus, planning for the future is a call to action for you - the member.  Whether you have just joined CATESOL or are a long-time member, your involvement is important.  How do you engage?  It’s easy!  Join and participate in your level’s google-group.  Attend a chapter event or a regional conference.  Share an idea in the CATESOL News.  Give your time!  Volunteer!  No matter if the position is large or small, each is important to running the organization, presenting events, and producing quality materials.  Not sure where to start? 

Contact us!  We’d be hay to help you find a place that suits your talents and abilities.

Until next month….

Onward and Upward –

Sydney Rice

President, CATESOL
