On November 4, MSEA will hold an Early Career Educators Summit. The event will feature 2014 National Teacher of the Year Sean McComb from Baltimore County as the keynote speaker, as well as include presentations and small group discussions with guest facilitators on subjects critical and relevant to early career educators.
This day is designed to provide participants with ideas to take back to the classroom on Monday. Educators will have the opportunity to reconnect with their inspiration for the profession, explore ways to deepen relationships with students, learn about resources to support an optimal learning environment, and collaborate with other educators to share best practices.
The event will run from 8:30 a.m.- 3:30 p.m., with lunch served around noon. Sign-in and continental breakfast will begin at 8:00 a.m.
Participants choose two breakout sessions that are more like roundtables, where early educators can talk about their issues with their colleagues with an experienced teacher present to facilitate. The breakout topics include:
- Building Student Relations
- Classroom Management
- Differentiated Instruction
- English Language Learners
- Home/School Relations
- Special Education
- Stress Reduction
MSEA members with five years of experience or less are encouraged to register.
