287.  Subject:  ESL educationDr. Sadek, I just visited your ESL website.  I am a teacher in Columbus, Ohio and will be traveling to Houston and San Luis Potosi, Mexico in August.  I am currently working toward a 'new' teaching license with an emphasis on the ESL student.  Do you know of anyone in Houston that I could meet with regarding ESL programs in Texas?  I appreciate your assistance.  Your website is extremely helpful.

ANSWER:

THANKS for visiting my Web Sites!!!   Wish you the BEST of trips to a beautiful and most interesting part of Mexico!!!!   Thank you also for your positive comment concerning my Web Sites.  I appreciate your sharing your question and comment with me.  Also I wish you success in your work towards your ESL endorsement.

I am sure that if you call the Houston Independent School District in Houston, Texas, they will direct your call to their very extensive English-As-A-Second Language Department.   I am sure any of the ESL teachers or coordinators will be glad to be of assistance to you.   I have given your name to several friends I have in different areas of Texas, and I am sure you will be hearing from them with some more specific recommendations.   

I admire your professionalism to take time off your vacation --I am sure-- to learn more about your students and your new teaching emphasis.   Congratulations.   C.S.S.

Dr. Sadek,
