Thanks to all of our participants in the "So You Want a Job as a Teacher" workshop!

Even though the day was wet we had a great turnout for our first workshop focused on pre-service teachers who will soon be seeking that first teaching position.

They had sessions on topics from Developing a Strategy for Applying for Teaching Positions, Helpful hints for interviewing, Hints for writing that letter of interest, TKES, Differentiating, Professionalism, Ethics, Certification, Classroom Management, and Instructional Practices. They also heard from GAE and PAGE. Additionally, they participated in a discussion about why it is important for them to participate in system retirement plans.

Looking forward to our 2nd So You Want a Job as a Teacher!
Coming Soon!
If you missed this one...I hope that you will make plans to attend.

Thanks to all who made it an eventful and informative day!
Good luck to every teacher candidate in your pursuit of your first teaching job!
