TESOL 2023 Experience by Heidi Saleska

ESL Instructor
Rogue Community College
Grants Pass, Oregon

This was my first International TESOL event and it was WONDERFUL! I was able to attend 4-5 workshops each day and all of them were interesting. I am a community college ESL instructor so my primary goal was to walk away with some practical tools I could use in my class room with little additional research and time required. The most useful workshop I attended was Ladders for Everyone: Scaffolding Activities in Mixed-Level Classes by Cassia DeFillipo. Ph.D. from Klamath Community College. She provided us with a power point we could use in our classes with Speaking, Listening, Writing, and Reading activities. Her power point provided us a look into her multi-level classroom and scaffolding in her classroom sample activities. Each of the scaffolded activities had website links to her resources. I am so pleased I was able to attend the TESOL Conference 2023. I can’t wait to get back in the classroom.
