ORTESOL 2019 Fall Conference
Reflect and Renew
Friday & Saturday November 15-16
Clackamas Community College Harmony Campus
7738 SE Harmony Rd, Milwaukie, OR 97222
In recognition of the fact that a teacher’s job can feel like it is never done, the ORTESOL Board invites you to submit a proposal for a 50-minute session aligned with our theme of Reflect and Renew. This year’s theme highlights the need for active practitioners to “sharpen the saw” and combat burnout!
