Will you join us for our biggest professional development opportunity of the summer?

Hello there, LA alumni!

On April 21, we invited you to Teach For America’s second annual Educators Conference.  This event will bring together approximately 1,000 alumni educators, corps members, partners, students and community members in Las Vegas, Nevada for two days of collaboration, celebration, and outstanding professional development, and we want to make sure that you hear that we want you to be there.

As an educator, the opportunity to develop your understanding of the complexities of our shared education landscape and learn alongside alumni colleagues is probably one the most important aspects of this gathering.  Our aim is for the plenaries, panels, workshops, and Ed Talks to truly push your thinking and help you develop the knowledge and skills you need to impact your classroom or school community.  Here are just a few of the session for which you can register today: 

  • Panel:  “Designing a School That Serves ALL Students: Challenges and Success for Schools Serving Students with Special Needs”
  • Ed Talk: “Perspectives of Change: School District Turnaround”
  • Workshop:  ”Empowering Our Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students”
  • Ed Talk:  “Walk the Walk: Finding Opportunities that Align with Your Educational Philosophy”
  • Workshop:  “What every educator needs to know about supporting LBGTQ Students”

To view all the workshops and sessions that will be a part of this event, please visit our registration site:  Educators Conference Registration.   Registration is live and the cost of the conference is only $25 per person through May 31 (then increases to $50).  We’ve also arranged for hotel costs starting as low as $60 per night. 

We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas this summer (and check out the photos of last year’s conference below)!
