Greetings colleagues,
Just a quick hello from Central Washington University in Ellensburg,
Washington. I'm not sure if I'm a dot on the map yet, but thought I'd
introduce myself. Thanks to Ana, I started receiving xmca e-mails about
a month ago. It has been refreshing to read everyone's dialouge. A
powerhouse of energy collectively represents the members of this

Just a little about myself......I fell in love with Vygotsky in '89 when
reading Thought and Language at Illinois while pursuing my first
Master's degree. This past May, I graduated from the University of New
Mexico with a doctorate in Language, Literacy, and Sociocultural Studies
focusing on Bilingual / TESL Education. It was an honor to have Vera
John-Steiner chair my committee. Emergent biliteracy, multi-modal
meaningmaking, and teacher education reform on behalf of culturally and
linguistically diverse children remain my great interests.

My best wishes to you and your families for the upcoming year. May you
experience peace, joy, and good health.
Todo lo mejor (All the best),

M. Cathrene Connery, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Bilingual & TESL Education
