Adult Level Award Applications Coming Soon!

The CATESOL Adult Level Professional Development Scholarship encourages each CATESOL member to invite a colleague who is not yet a member to take part in the excellent professional development CATESOL provides at its annual conference and year-round. The scholarship also seeks to promote collaboration between colleagues by asking them to develop a plan to share the highlights of the conference at their school site(s).

The Norma Shapiro Awardee must be a CATESOL member and Adult Level ESL teacher who has demonstrated exceptional skill in at least three of the following four areas: classroom teaching, teacher-training/professional development, materials writing, or curriculum development.
