Get to know more about ATESL
Alberta Teachers of English as a Second Language (ATESL) is a professional organization that promotes quality teaching and English language program provision for all learners in Alberta whose first language is other than English. It also provides many special professional development opportunities to its members and non-members with ESL interests, including monthly workshops, an annual conference, and an online resource library.
Rural Routes and ATESL signed a one-year Memorandum of Agreement for the year 2015-2016 to work cooperatively to strengthen the relationship between Rural Routes and ATESL.
For more information on services provided by ATESL, the ATESL Board members, or to find out about events happenings throughout the ATESL community, visit the ATESL website at www.atesl.ca.
The ATESL website also gives access to the resource library which provides information on ESL teaching and other ESL-related resources, including links to other websites of interest. Browse the Alberta Initiatives Gallery http://www.atesl.ca/albertaInitiativesGallery to look at a compilation of resources funded and developed in Alberta.
