Two area educators have been recognized by MinneTESOL, the premier professional association for English as a Second Language professionals in the state. Anne Dahlman, Interim Dean of Global Education at Minnesota State Mankato and Kimberly Johnson, the Associate Vice President of Effective Teaching and Learning at South Central College, are being recognized for their innovation and leadership in developing a premier regional journal. MinneTESOL says between 2012 and 2017, Dahlman and Johnson created a new vision for the organization leading the transition from a static on-line journal with limited circulation into interactive, open access, a practitioner-oriented academic journal.
