Sharing is caring! Spread some wisdom at this year's Novice Mentor Rap Session.

Calling all mentors! During this rap session, "mentors" will meet with students or newly graduated teachers who are seeking career and teaching advice from experienced teachers and administrators. We hope you can share valuable career information about getting and keeping teaching positions in all contexts and levels of ESL teaching. In addition, we would advise students to bring their resumes/CVs to ask for any comments or suggestions. At the same time, you may find eager and eligible candidates for your ESL program. These would be short, 10-minute meetings with students/novice teachers that would take place during the conference on Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 12:30pm - 1:30pm. We hope this will be a motivating and informative session for students and teachers to help them be more prepared, informed, and confident as they transition from student to teacher. 


Please reply by Sep 20, 2017 if you are interested in participating as a "mentor." Feel free to direct any questions regarding this event to the Student Representative, Jun Li, at
