Navigating our New Normal: Creating Inclusive Language Learning Environments

Keynote Presentation:  Rachel Tillotson, Let’s Keep it Real

Having trouble balancing everything on your plate? Struggling with challenges that feel overwhelmingly difficult to overcome? How can we possibly stay positive while doing all that’s required in a world that has recently been turned upside down? The answers to these questions may not be simple but there are ways to rethink our perspectives and methods of addressing these challenges. Simply put, LET’S KEEP IT REAL! Let’s take a step back and look at how we approach the new normal handed to us and identify what really matters. In this session we’ll view, discuss, and practice focused strategies that we can implement both in and outside of the classroom to promote a more well-balanced approach and how to help those around us to do the same.

Rachel Tillotson is a national PLAN, SWCOLT and ACTFL presenter and is a strong advocate for global competency, social justice, diversity and the incorporation of Social Emotional Learning pedagogies. She is currently the President of the Professional Language Association of Nevada and a National Board Certified teacher in an urban high school in Reno, NV.
