Welcome from the CATESOL Northern Regional Conference Chair March 25 2017 Welcome Dear CATESOL members and conference attendees Welcome to the 2017 CATESOL Northern California Regional Conference The theme for the conference Riding the Waves of Change addresses the constantly evolving landscape in the field of ESL Over time there are shifts in student demographics government funding and academic expectations that ESL professionals must navigate and accommodate seamlessly into their professional lives By taking advantage of opportunities such as the Northern California Regional CATESOL Conference those who work in ESL are seizing the chance to learn from and teach others useful and practical findings that they have learned through research and or experience Armed with this knowledge ESL professionals will not be afraid of being overpowered by the seas of policy funding and unrealistic expectations Instead they will be able to anticipate and confidently ride the waves of change that will inevitably continue to crash on the shores of our profession Sincerely Michelle Bagwell Conference Chair 2017 Northern Regional CATESOL Conference 2
