ITBE’s 43rd annual conference, “Meeting the Challenge”, if quickly approaching. Senior ESL Specialist for Illinois Ellen Zlotnick will be exhibiting and also presenting on the highlights of our current catalog. If you are attending, we hope you will stop by our booth to say hello to Ellen and, if you are the awesome person we think you are, attend her workshop.
This one is a first for us. The University of South Carolina runs the National Resource Center for First Year Experience and Students in Transition. The Annual First Year Experience Conference “provides an ongoing forum where higher education professionals can share experiences, concerns, and accomplishments related to supporting student learning, development, and success in the first college year.”
We are excited to be attending and exhibiting this year, to learn and to spread the word about the Transferable Academic Skills Kit.
Our showroom is closed for the holidays and will reopen for business on January 3rd. However, customer service and shipping/receiving will be operating on December 28th, 29th and 30th.
Thank you for your business in 2016 and we wish you the best for 2017!

Some teachers in the Boston area decided that they needed a professional development opportunity that speaks to the specific needs of teachers working in private language schools and Intensive English Programs, and from that the MATESOL PLS/IEP Mini-Conference was born. We are pleased to support and attend this inaugural event being held at CELOP at Boston University.
The last conference we have to post in the month of October! This one is in Austin and will be focused on “Exploring Innovation while Honoring the Past.”
This year’s SETESOL Conference is in Louisville, KY. The conference title is “Racing toward a brighter future” and they have a nice picture of a horse to go along with it. We like.
The conference is a day-long affair at the Sheraton in Rocky Hill, Connecticut.
If you happen to fall upon this conference in Slippery Rock, be sure to find Ellen Zlotnick to say hi and check out the selection of titles she has on display. Ellen may well be giving a presentation as well!
