We at CLTA-WA understand that these are trying times and that teachers are being asked to adapt in new ways to meet the educational needs of students by way of remote/online learning. In light of recent events, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel our Spring Workshop. However, we remain committed to supporting our community and, as such, CLTA-WA will be working to help provide the Chinese teachers with quality instructional tools, resources, and access to professional development via our website and social media outlets. Individuals and organizations across the world are all dealing with new situations on a moment to moment basis and we appreciate your understanding as we try to provide quality services in a difficult situation. If there are resources, materials, or professional development materials in particular that you are looking for, we encourage you to reach out and let us know how we can best support you and the community.
