  • So, the IEP role was not high prestige, but it wasn’t overtly threatened as it is today.
  • Nearly every household had daily ice deliveries. It was essential and built into daily life and to the community interactions. Beer companies started experimenting with artificial refrigeration but not one ice company redefined itself as a refrigeration company.
  • The real objectives of our students are beyond English. They are degrees and careers. ESL is broad term that does not describe the student’s end goal. It also carries a low status connotation, so move beyond it.
  • Everything we’ve been doing is great, but we need to reframe it to match the goals of the global classroom and marketplace.
  • Substitute corporate community and you’ll see they basically want the same things from IEPs. Make our contributions known by raising awareness on campus – but not of ESL.
  • Show up - brown bag lunches , international week

  • TESOL 2011 Karen O'Neill
    If educators want to be treated as professionals, we should carry ourselves as professionals. Business attire in the classroom portrays an image of an educator who is proud of the work he or she does.
    What degree of respect can teachers expect to receive if they don't dress like role models intent on providing the very best education for their students? Would a doctor see patients in shorts and a T-shirt? Would an attorney enter a courtroom with flip-flops and Capri pants?...
    --Ray Waters, English Teacher, Florida http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qa3617/is_200602/ai_n17170769
