This year’s theme highlights the need for active practitioners to “sharpen the saw”! Ask any teacher in Oregon about the challenges they experience in relation to their jobs as English language educators and most would agree that building a sustainable career, managing time, working with limited resources, and our strained and uncertain political climate can lead to a deep sense of burnout.
Please join us in working to create a healthier community of practice!
