BTRN Elections 2017-2019

vote

Dear TESOLer,

Time flies like an arrow, doesn’t it? 7 years ago the BRAZ-TESOL RN Chapter was founded. I was then given the honour to serve as the local chapter’s president. I have gladly led BTRN ever since with the support of the local executive board. Although we went through an interlude, last year (2016) we came back in full force: 3 (three) succesful events and new members and volunteers added to the community!

Now it is time to inject new blood into the local chapter. Therefore, I am pleased to invite all members in good standing to run for one of the positions for the 2017-2019 term. It is your chance to participate actively in the future of BRAZ-TESOL in Rio Grande do Norte (and beyond). Please download and read the PDF document below and submit your application by no later than next Monday, the 5th of May, 2017.

The LOVE you make is the LOVE you take

whatsapp-image-2016-12-02-at-10-32-49
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.

President

It’s today! | BTRN Seminar

diversity-pic

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
