Another highlight of the conference was when Kathleen Slattery, Cohort 1 participant form Salinas Adult School, received Norma Shapiro Memorial Library Award during Adult Level Lunch Rap Session. The award was instituted by Jayme Adelson-Goldstein to honor Norma Shapiro’s memory by recognizing an adult ESL teacher who demonstrates excellence in classroom instruction, teacher training, and materials development. Here’s a video of Kathleen’s speech.
Big thank you to Page Endo, the Adult Level Chair for 2008-09. The incoming Adult Level Chair is our own Kristi Reyes from MiraCosta Community College, Cohort 2 participant.
