President's Message:
By Sandee McBride


Sandee McBride, NJTESOL/NJBE President 2015 Spring Conference Handouts

     Reflecting on this year's conference, one thing that immediately comes to my mind is the desire to have workshop handouts. This year, the amount of conference information and handouts one can access on our website has increased quite a bit. All members can take advantage of this whether you were an attendee and or were unable to be with us this year. The keynote presentations, the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) state initiatives, the Bilingual Administrative Code for both ESL and bilingual teachers, and many workshop handouts can be found there for your leisurely perusal. You may find it convenient and beneficial to save information that you find most pertinent to you on your computer for future reference. Please go to the following link to download any or all of these documents: http://www.njtesol-njbe.org/handouts15/index.htm

     Appreciation goes to the presenters who have provided their Power Points and handouts for our members. If you were a presenter who has not yet had an opportunity to submit your documents, it is not too late to do so. If you would like to add yours to our growing list, please email them to our Technology Coordinator, Marilyn Pongracz at the following address:
mpongracz@njtesol-njbe.org

     Finally, thanks to all of our participants, attendees, volunteers, presenters, hotel staff, technology providers, signage and decor, conference booklet preparation, printing, publishing personnel, sponsors and exhibitors. The list of people behind the scenes preparing for this conference seems endless. Most of all, my appreciation and thanks go to Dr. JoAnne Negrin, our Conference Coordinator, Gwen Franks, our Business Administrator, and our Executive Board volunteers, without whose determination and great efforts, a conference of this size would not be possible.
