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.
The Adult Level Student Essay Contest is for ESOL students in adult education and noncredit community college programs throughout the state of California.
Application forms will soon be available on our CATESOL website.
