    In this session, participants will explore the merits of an authentic writers' workshop as an avenue for student access to language.

She has taught writers workshop as a classroom teacher, led professional learning sessions at the local and state levels, and has worked as a school effectiveness specialist and/or literacy coordinator in both Georgia and Hawaii.

    Lindy Lopez-Butner exemplified the high ideals of an unusually competent, sensitive, caring ESOL teacher who sacrificed her own time and comfort for the well-being of her students, especially the neediest ones. In her honor, Georgia TESOL has set up a memorial grant.


    The purpose of this grant is to promote the professional development of a promising ESOL teacher who is a current member in good standing of Georgia TESOL and has a worthy plan or goal that will directly benefit ESOL students, but lacks the resources or materials to achieve his or her goal or project. The grant is offered on a yearly basis.

    This grant is intended to provide assistance for an immersion experience abroad for an educator who wishes to serve his or her students better by learning more about their culture and language through experiencing the culture firsthand. It is named in honor of our late colleague and Georgia TESOL member John Stowe, who was constantly learning languages, traveling, and spending time with students in order to better understand their culture. John also firmly believed that a strong sense of place is a vital part of being truly immersed and connected to a community. The value of this grant is $2,000.
