WORDS BY
PAST RECIPIENTS

“I was reminded of another reason why CATESOL Conferences have kept me engaged and returning every year: the approachability and friendliness of its presenters, members, and participants” - Denise Cedillos, Recipient of 2017 CATESOL Los Angeles Regional Stipend

"At the end of the day, it was abundantly clear to me that every workshop participant had a sense of belongingness to the CATESOL community. "- Dr. Nancy K. Johnson, Recipient of 2019 CATESOL San Diego Stipend

"My difficulty with choosing sessions is that I always want to attend more than one, if not all of them, since they cover such a wide variety of relevant topics. However, with my ability to only be in one place at a time, I selected the above-mentioned session to learn about principles that I could apply to my teaching contexts –– and learn them I did! The session was fast-paced and interactive and I loved the suggested activities, so much so that I made plans to incorporate them into my class starting Monday morning."- Tiffany Kim, Recipient of 2018 CATESOL San Diego Regional Stipend

“CATESOL has so many great events that teach and inspire, but the costs add up for those of us who can't get reimbursed by our employers. As an adjunct instructor at multiple schools, I usually feel overworked and underpaid, so attending a conference with other professionals who have brilliant insights and strategies is a rejuvenating experience. I am so grateful that (the CATESOL Education) Foundation provided the funds for me to attend one of these amazing regional conferences.” - Jennie Watson, Recipient of 2016 CATESOL Los Angeles Regional Stipend

Thank you for the Foundation's support of these volunteers and the San Diego Chapter's event! - Lydia Sparksworthy
