The LOVE you make is the LOVE you take

Why devote one’s time + energy + talents + money . . . LIFE to an English Teachers’ Association?
 
Because we believe in the transforming power of education which lies with teachers. By creating professional development opportunities for colleagues across Brazil (and beyond), we know we affect positively students who receive better quality instruction. But that’s not all: we also know that teachers committed to develop become more motivated and motivating, interested and interesting, and at the end of the day, happier.
 
And we believe that,

“In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”

 
Dedicated to all the colleagues in Brazil and beyond who have made a difference in the ELT profession and their learners’ lives.

It’s today! | BTRN Seminar

Dear ELT Professional,

The day we’ve been waiting for is here: this afternoon ELT professionals who have committed to becoming better at what they do are meeting to discuss The Many Faces of ELT in Brazil. Colleagues from all over Rio Grande do Norte, Paraíba, Pernambuco, São Paulo and beyond will be contributing sessions on a wide variety of themes: from bilingualism to the realities of teaching in the public sector, from literature to creative language teaching. It’s surely going to be an amazing event.

Remember: we start at 1.30 PM but strongly advise you to arrive at least 30 minutes in advance. If you haven’t registered yet but would like to join us you can still do it as on-site registrations will be available.

We look forward to seeing and interacting with you this afternoon.

Together we are indeed stronger!

Fernando Guarany
President

BRAZ-TESOL RN | 19 November 2016 | Closing Plenary

HEART, MIND and SOUL: a holistic approach to the development of elt professionals

Abstract

Several teacher training and CPD (continuous professional development) schemes tend to focus on the so-called SKA (Skills, Knowledge and Attitude) matrix to the guide their activities. Unfortunately, other equally (or more) vital areas in an ELT professional’s life such as emotions, sense of purpose and, ultimately, health are often left unattended. This session is a call to refl(a)ction to all of us in the language teaching world who yearn for more than just bread and butter out of the profession.

 Speaker’s bio

Born and raised in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest, I’ve worked in multiple ELT roles for 25 years. I’m the president of BRAZ-TESOL RN (btrn.wordpress.com) and a member of the national BRAZ-TESOL advisory council. I strongly believe that every teacher and learner has unspeakable potential and I take pleasure in helping as many as possible fully achieve it. I love cycling, sailing and playing with my super grandson, João Roberto.
