To help educators rejuvenate their passion for teaching, Teachscape's higher education division, in partnership with Cardinal Stritch University and Marygrove University, is offering free face-to-face events to learn what quality traits make a teacher a hero to students.
The Spring 2010 TEACHER AS HERO (TAH) schedule will offer face-to-face meetings in select cities nationwide. Teachscape uses these events to foster motivational conversations that will invigorate an educator's interest and passion for the teaching profession. These informal professional development opportunities allow educators to join a conversation based around transformative classroom moments. TAH provides educators with an open forum to discuss teaching traits, to learn about strategies to help maintain joy in teaching and combat teacher fatigue, and to share stories that make teachers everyday heroes. Each session also discusses online master's degree programs that enable teachers to continue their education and fulfill their teaching aspirations.
The Spring 2010 TEACHER AS HERO schedule is as follows:
March events include March 18, 2010 in Hackensack, New Jersey, and March 24, 2010, in Troy, Michigan.
April events include April 19, 2010, in Prince William County, Virginia; April 20, 2010, in Halifax, Virginia; and April 27, 2010, in Mankato, Minnesota. (Event information to be posted after March 17, 2010.)
A TAH event in May is being held on May 19, 2010, in Morris County, New Jersey.
