What you do matters.

The connection between the choices you make as a teacher and academic excellence is important. However, students are more than just people that we try and fill with content. Your work as a teacher, non-profit member or ministry leader can be so much more.

What you do is meaningful. Cornerstone University's 18th Annual English as a Second Language (ESL) Conference can help.
