Teacher-Leader Network Seeks Proposals for 2018 National Conference
The National Network of State Teachers of the Year (NNSTOY) requests proposals for workshops and other interactive sessions to be presented at its 2018 National Teacher Leadership Conference, July 8-11 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Proposals are due by February 5.
The 4-day conference will convene state and national teachers of the year (and finalists from the states) to “engage with national education leaders, administrators, policy makers, the business community, and colleagues to dynamically teach and learn in order to impact students, schools, and the profession.” Themed Teaching Tomorrow’s Leaders, the conference will offer sessions focused on four urgent problems of practice identified through a membership survey by NNSTOY:
- Teacher Leadership: How can we build our leadership skills and create and support teacher leadership structures that benefit all students?
- Student Engagement: How can we create more engaging learning environments so that all students are motivated to grow?
- Social and Emotional Learning: How can we equip all educators to teach fundamental social and emotional competencies as part of their regular instruction?
- Equity: How can we examine our own biases and provide equitable learning environments for all students?
The “Deep Dive” sessions will run 45 minutes during the last 2 days of the conference and must engage participants in exploring one of the problems of practice. Presenters need not be affiliated with NNSTOY. For further details, consult the conference website or request for proposals, or contact Joe Fatheree at firstname.lastname@example.org.
