SCFLTA members represent a wide range of experiences, and backgrounds. To leverage the great expertise that exists throughout the state, we are creating a series of short (1 – 7 minutes) mentoring videos answering questions such as “What best practices do you apply regularly in your WL classroom?” and “How do I get my students to use the target language?” The videos will be made available on our website to members and non-members of SCFLTA If you would like to participate or if you have any questions about the videos, please contact Nadine Okoduwa Stewart at email@example.com, or any other board member. Thanks, SCFLTA
Videos Videos will be organized as more selection becomes available.

We have added FLAVA workshops throughout the school year to serve the professional development needs of Virginia educators and those of members of our sister state organizations in Virginia's two regional organizations, the Northeast Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (NECTFL) and the Southern Conference on Language Teaching (SCOLT). Each workshop provides one hour of credits toward license recertification. This year our registration process is a little different as we are opening our workshops to members of our sister states in Virginia's two regional organizations, the Northeast Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (NECTFL) and the Southern Conference on Language Teaching (SCOLT). You must register individually for each session and then a day or two before the workshop, you will receive a Zoom link. All times are Eastern.
