Conference Details
Who: 

Highly recommended for new and nearly new teachers in their first three years of teaching.  (Not open to STEA members.)  Participation is limited.  Spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. More experienced teachers will be wait-listed and accommodated on a space-available basis within two weeks of each program date.

Sessions: 

Track 1: Powerful Teaching

Explore best practices for delivering powerful instruction, including student assignments and assessments that go beyond expectations, enhance instruction and advance student learning. This session will strengthen your approach to the evaluation domains and indicators no matter the evaluation model used in your district. It offers valuable insights and practical tips for teachers of all subjects at all grade levels.

Track 2: I Can Do It!

This interactive, highly acclaimed classroom-management training addresses one of the greatest needs identified by beginning teachers and their principals. The program covers classroom transitions, reinforcements, rules and routines, dealing with difficult behavior and more — all designed especially for the less experienced teacher, irrespective of grade level taught.
