Established in 2004, the WATESOL (Washington-Area Teachers of English to the Speakers of Other Languages) NNEST (Non-native English-speaking Teachers) Caucus welcomes both native and non-native-speaking professionals to share a common vision of professionalism and equity in the field of TESOL.
The primary goals of the WATESOL NNEST Caucus are to
- support NNESTs professionally,
- build awareness of NNEST benefits, concerns and needs,
- promote research on NNEST issues, and
- encourage NNEST/NEST collaboration.
If you think that
- one of the unique characteristics of our profession is the all-encompassing boundaries that welcome ethnic, racial, cultural, religious, and linguistic diversity,
- collaboration among native and non-native English-speaking teachers will form the basis for the desirable future of our profession, which can only be actualized by legitimate participation of both parties,
- you are responsible to build the future of our profession, and work with like-minded professionals
WATESOL NNEST Caucus will be happy to welcome you!
- Our Caucus builds the NNEST entry on Wikipedia!
