Martina is internationally recognized for her leadership and expertise in the world language teaching profession as a teacher trainer and curriculum developer.  A Spanish teacher by trade with experience in public and private schools and at the university level, Martina balances her work for The Comprehensible Classroom with the needs of her five young children, for whom she is the full-time caregiver.

Tips for Registration and Payment


PayPal Caveats and Workarounds

We use Paypal to process online payments. A PayPal account is not necessary, however currently it requires that the registrant also be the cardholder since it automatically populates that person's name into its system.

For registrants whose organization will make payment, there are three options:

1. Request that a check be mailed to:

 MCTLC
 PO Box 11926
 St. Paul, MN 55111

The registrants' name must be included so that we know for whom to apply payment.

2. MCTLC Treasurer can forward an invoice to the person who will be paying but that person's contact information must be in our system. Go here to add your name to our mailing list. That person may then use PayPal to process a credit card.

3. Make payment and request reimbursement.

Register as a Group

Register your colleagues as a group using the "register a guest" option.

The person who registers the group should be the person making payment. In other words, the person whose name is on the credit card should be the primary registrant since PayPal will require that person to be the cardholder. If the cardholder is not in the group use one of the methods outlined above.
