In NY, we refer to our students as ENL or ELLs.
While at an annual PD, we heard talk of changing the acronym to MLLs.

What do you all do to make non-professional / personal connections? Particularly with the Coronavirus, and being in domestic relations, I wake up, go to work, work out, go home.

Probably a good thing for now; but if we take coronavirus out of the equation, I’m interested what others in the community do to develop personal connections.

Hi, I’m in a field where there are very few foreigners. I’ve been in this country since teenage years but I’m still on h1b (but most employers would think I’m already a citizen because they just don’t encounter many candidates who are not Americans in the field). At what point should I inform a potential employer that I need visa sponsorship? I was told I should wait to tell until I get an offer. Is that right?
