TESOL provides an opportunity to connect to others with the same students or professional aspirations but also provides an opportunity for leadership development, professional learning communities connections, and to make professional friends around the world. These types of connections allow us to support our students, teachers, and development in education.

Every year, TESOL's convention serves to enrich, invigorate, and enlighten the professionals of the field. The variety and quality of the sessions inspire seasoned instructors and novices alike. Equally valuable though are the power and support manifested by both the sense of community and the networking opportunities this gathering provides.
