In 2017, the Cordell Hull Foundation presented two dozen orientations in 15 cities around the U.S. in English, French, Spanish and Mandarin … for new teachers only.  The schedule for 2018 will start to form next spring.  At least 10 new teachers must be sponsored in the region in order to send a trainer.  Due to the large number of teachers who  have obtained 4th and 5th year extensions, fewer workshops may be needed in 2018.
