I went to the TPRStorytelling site and map. You may have to “enroll” to get into the map area..but I found a list of Oregon folks here: http://www.tprstorytelling.com/index.php?option=com_sobi2&catid=39&Itemid=9999
I don’t know if you have much connection with your state language organization, but we have been working slowly but surely here in NY to see that TPRS is an active and respected part of the conference scene…which has brought teachers together.
I also found the name of a teacher from the state of Washington (Rick Beck email@example.com ) on this page : http://www.pncfl.org/
Maybe not as close as you’d hoped…but a start!!!
On Carol Gaab’s website, there is a TPRS map. You sign up (and then get the newsletter) and you will be able to find out whether there are others nearby.
I think that’s the right place. Otherwise go to tprstorytelling.com and find the map.
Okay, I read your post too quickly and I saw: I will kill my actual colleague here… I’ve had those days…
Janet I was having one of those bitchy edge days and it’s gone now, thanks to you. Thanks for the belly laugh.
Thanks. I remember that map from a couple years ago. I will check there.
I teach in Gresham and live in Portland, but I only teach one period of middle school French. I try my best with TPRS though. I attended a three day training in 06 with Donna Tatum-Johns. I would love to talk or visit. firstname.lastname@example.org
