Heraclitus wrote “there is nothing permanent except change” which helps explain why NM TESOL is experiencing a refresh. NM TESOL was reestablished in 2008, and ten years later here we are again hitting the refresh button to update our website and social media presence, our membership list, and our professional development opportunities.
Since this is a non-profit organization managed by volunteers, we are counting upon your input to help make NM TESOL a more vibrant useful resource in the educational community in New Mexico. Laura McIndoo and Amy Christensen are acting as Co-Presidents until the official election in December. They hope to be joined by three other interested New Mexican educators to fill the remaining board member roles of Secretary, Newsletter Editor, and Web Coordinator.
Please consider being someone who helps us make these changes. The board meetings are held online once a month and the job descriptions are below.
If you don’t have the time to serve as a board member, we would still value your input on how to make NM TESOL a more user-friendly organization. We will be creating a Survey Monkey poll after the New Year to solicit your ideas.
In the meantime, look for an email announcing our social media updates as well as information about our first workshop in the spring. To conclude, Andy Warhol states “they always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” We look forward to getting your help to change and improve NM TESOL!
