TESOL Student Member
Benemérita Universidad de Puebla
Why are you a TESOL member?
By being a TESOL member I can meet, connect, and collaborate with teachers and ELT professionals from all over the world. TESOL makes me feel aware of my global identity as a language teacher and do some of the things I love doing the most: meeting great people, learning about the ELT profession, and representing my country, Mexico.
What has been your most significant achievement in or contribution to the TESOL field?
TESOL has helped me a lot in my professional development. Now I can give something in return by being an associate editor of the TESOL Journal (TJ) and the MEXTESOL Journal, and by collaborating as the chair-elect of the English as a Foreign Language Interest Section (EFL-IS). At a more local level in Mexico, I love doing teacher-training, and as the editor-in-chief of my school academic journal, I try to help teachers to get published. I want all teachers in the world to have the same opportunities—we can do a lot for each other! TESOL has provided me with the opportunities to make some of my professional dreams come true.
