The cost to register for each session is $10.
Professional learning for new teachers
With packed schedules and pressure to prepare for tomorrow’s lessons, it’s no wonder many new teachers spend little time outside their own classrooms. However, when teachers have regular, structured opportunities to learn together, good ideas are more likely to travel from one classroom to the next. Join us as we provide sessions on a variety of topics ranging from engaging young learners to mindfulness and selfcare. As new teachers (1-5 years) you will build relationships with colleagues from across the city, explore new learning opportunities and discuss strategies for student engagement.
Partners Through Experience
Partners Through Experience is a voluntary program that brings together a new member (1-3 years of experience) with a recent retiree (1-5 years retired) to form a confidential and collaborative relationship. By matching a new member with a veteran educator, a supportive collaboration can begin.
If you're a new member or a recent retiree who is interested in participating, register online »
