TESOL MACEDONIA-THRACE  AGM at the International Publisher's Exhibition. 
The MET Hotel, Thessaloniki  19th and 20th March 2022 

After two years in limbo TESOL Macedonia-Thrace, Northern Greece is holding its AGM that was postponed from February 2020 to March 2020 and could not be held due to the lockdowns. Now, thanks to the generosity of Philip Dietchi, we have a unique opportunity to meet face to face and run our elections. 

On Sunday 20th March at the MET Hotel at 15:00, Tania Livarda, Maria Polychrou and Antigoni Melidonioti will be presenting a joint session entitled 

''Let us restart ourselves!'' 

The speakers have shared the following summaries with us: 

Title: Hey Teacher…. where’s your magic wand?

 Summary: Are we magic weavers? Do we do magic every day? Do we have invisible, magical powers? What is our magic spell and magic word? In other words, how can we cope with being teachers, facilitators, mentors, leaders, and coaches at the same time? And how are all these connected to our darkest friend…burnout? Don’t forget to bring your magic wand and magic spell with you!

Ms Tanya Livarda  holds a BA and an MA in TESOL, a CELTA and DELTA. She works as ab EFL Teacher abd Oral Examiner

                                                Title: Reinventing ourselves through Educational Drama

 Smmary: Is it important to reinvent ourselves as educators in order to reinvent our classes? Which path of exploration should we follow with our students so as to go beyond standard approaches? How can we lead our classes from the personal to the critical? Educational Drama is the key to critical reflection, reinvention and social change! Reinvent Yourselves and Become Spect- Actors!!

Ms Maria Polychrou holds a BA and an MA Theatre in Education. She is an EFL Teacher, Oral Examiner, Teacher Trainer and Adult Education Teacher

 Title : The hungry caterpillar goes digital

 Summary: Is it possible for Baby Boomers and Generation X to keep up with the Millennials or is it a lost cause? Are educational apps and webtools an invaluable asset or a nuisance in order to revolutionise and transform learning? A passing fad or the new reality? Can the hungry caterpillar go digital and transform learning apart from ourselves? To what extent?

 Ms Antigoni Melidonioti  holds a CELTA and is an EFL Teacher, Teacher Trainer, Oral Examiner, and School Owner.

 At 15:50 when the session ends, EXPRESS PUBLISHING will be treating us to coffee. After the coffee break, we will hold our AGM to elect our Board and Supervisory Committee. It is very important for all members to attend and run for the board (provided they have been TESOL MTH members for at least a year before the limbo).
