The PERC

PERC Darker

New Mexico has a professional and comprehensive ESL (English as a Second Language) Resource Center available for New Mexico educators and learning communities statewide. In a unique cooperative venture, private donors Catherine and Mac Lewis, NM TESOL (New Mexico Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) and CNM (Central New Mexico Community College) have come together to establish the new Professional ESL Resource Center (PERC) on CNM’s Montoya Campus. The PERC houses an extensive array of commercial and custom-developed ESL teaching materials, accumulated and created by the Lewises over more than a decade in support of Catherine’s highly successful ESL work with English language learners. The materials range from pre-K to adult and off er a broad variety of resources to help students learn, practice and improve their English skills.

Currently, the PERC is closed due to the Pandemic and the Delta variant.  We will reopen as soon as we can do if safely.

Board of Directors – Nominate by Dec 6th

Would you like to serve?

The following NM Board positions are up for election this year: President, Treasurer, Web Coordinator and Membership Coordinator. Please send in nominations by December 6. Elections will be held online from December 8-15. You DO NOT have to debate, create campaign advertisements, or attend any state fairs to schmooze with the people to be a candidate in this election!
The term of service for these Board members will be the years 2020 and 2021. Please take a moment to consider whether you or someone you know would be able and willing to serve in one of these capacities.
The President’s primary job is to lead the association, for example, by conducting meetings, representing the association to other professional associations and government offices, and taking a major role in organizing conferences.
The Treasurer has responsibility for maintaining the association’s financial records and serves as liaison with the association’s accountant, and other duties. (Knowledge of QuickBooks is preferred but not required. Our current very adept Treasurer has offered extensive training if needed.)
Web Coordinator has responsibility for the association’s email, online presence, social media, and other duties.
Membership Coordinator has responsibility for maintaining the membership database including sending the welcome email. In addition, the Membership Coordinator works on publicizing NM TESOL to attract more members.
In addition to being willing to fulfill the basic duties outlined above, the candidates must meet these criteria:
·     They must be willing to become a member of NMTESOL (if not already a member).
·     If elected, they must be willing to serve in the position for the duration of their two-year term.
·     If elected, they must be willing to take part in monthly NMTESOL Board of Directors meetings, which are generally conducted online using Zoom (a free online video-conferencing app). The meetings are generally for 45-minutes monthly with a break in the summer.
Anyone can recommend a person for the NMTESOL Board. If you wish to recommend yourself or someone else, please send recommendations to this e-mail address (nmtesol@gmail.com) along with a short introduction of the candidate. Send your candidate recommendations by December 6, 2019.
Voting will be conducted online. Results will be announced at our annual meeting, via email, and website.
Thank you for considering it!
