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.
