..."the best opportunity to connect and receive high-quality LOTE professional development in Houston!" - Jennifer Klaus, Cypress-Fairbanks ISD

Our organization:

​The Houston Area Teachers of Foreign Languages is the only local professional organization for Houston area foreign language teachers. 

It is a professional organization that promotes the interests of foreign language teachers in both public and private elementary schools, secondary schools, colleges and universities. 

Its structure includes special language sections for teachers of ESL (English as a Second Language), French, German, Latin, Spanish, American Sign Language, Chinese, and Japanese.

Attend the annual meeting (typically in October) for relevant professional development that focuses on topics that are current & relevant in language instruction!

Involve your students in the Farrington Contest - an excellent way to show off their new language skills.
