Dear FLENJ Members,


As language educators and consumers of culture and travel, we often spend our time off exploring and enriching our lives and those of our families.  This is not only something we feel intrinsically driven to do, it is also an essential part of our professional growth and rejuvenation for the next page in our educational work. 

I hope that this note finds you crafting a summer tale that renews your spirit and reminds you of the reason why we do what we do...to open the world to our students...to help them see beyond self...to provide them with perspectives that will construct their guiding principles as global citizens.  

 

FLENJ continues to work for you across the summer months.  We look forward to seeing so many of you at our Summer Refresher on August 11th.

 Registration ends this Saturday, July 31st!  We are very much looking forward to a day full of learning, sharing, and positive energy to carry into September!
In preparation for the upcoming school year, we are upgrading our website and working to make your online experiences more user friendly and helpful.  

We are preparing to open online registration for our workshop series, but you can print and submit a paper or PO registration form now .  

We are accepting proposals and exhibit registration for the annual conference to take place on March 31 and April 1, 2017.



Please follow the links above or visit www.flenj.org to learn more about all that FLENJ is doing for you!

I love to find great articles and posts that can assist educators.  To that end, I have put together a few links for you to peruse as you enjoy the rest of summer.

All my best,
