A message from our Eastern Chapter President

As teachers, we want and believe in our students’ well-being. I believe in teacher well-being first. If we are well, our students will be as well. My main goal as PRTESOL Eastern Chapter President is to connect with our members and add as much as possible to their well-being through their professional needs. PRTESOL Eastern Chapter is an advocate of teachers’ well-being. Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, said, “A good teacher is like a candle—it consumes itself to light the way for others.” As President, I want your candles to always have a flame.
