The Internet can be a vast place full of wonderful and frightening prospects. While there are many facets of the great inter-web, I am interested in exploring the dark, dingy, and somewhat unorganized corners that relate to the field of teaching English as a second language (TESL). It seems that the Internet provides an infinite spring of information, resources, and communication across many fields of study and professional interests, and there are many brave souls who have ventured into the inter-webs to collect and curate the best and brightest tools and information in those fields, including the field of ESL.
My goal and ultimate quest is to contribute to the organization of information and resources available for teachers of ESL with this humble blog. Undoubtedly, I will owe my efforts in large part to those brave professionals who have ventured before me, and I hope that I can carry the torch of information and professional development well enough to reach instructors and educators who wish to participate and collaborate in this exciting medium.
Throughout this endeavor, I welcome any input and collaboration from interested parties. After all, without curious and adventurous professionals there would be no larger online learning community, and my personal quest would be seriously misguided.
All of that being said, here goes nothing!
I raise my glass in a toast to this ongoing endeavor and to the endless steam of information to be had online.
