Dear members,

It is with much excitement and anticipation, as your newly elected president, that I am looking forward to the coming year. I hope to continue with the positive work of OFLTA and carry forward the successes of those before me. This requires a lot of effort, and your participation is most welcome. Please do not hesitate to let us know where your interests lie, what you want your contributions to be, and how OFLTA can better serve the state of Oklahoma. We look forward to your support.

In particular, we should all strive to increase the success of the Oklahoma Seal of Biliteracy, an award given by the Oklahoma State Department of Education in recognition of students who have studied and attained proficiency in English as well as an additional language upon high school graduation. OFLTA will share more details at the fall conference.

I wish you a successful and satisfying year!

Warm Regards,

Joe Terantino, Ph.D.
