Teacher Educators

The Teacher Educator special interest group is a working group designed to connect teacher educators and teacher educator groups to improve teacher preparation and thus improve educational opportunities for English Learners (ELs). The group is also interested in moving forward advocacy issues from a teacher education perspective. The group meets several times during the year face-to-face and using Go-To-Meeting, and communicates via a MATSOL E-list.


The group is open to current MATSOL Members at no charge.
