LA Teachers to Participate in Free Statewide Day of Learning and Networking Celebrating the Teaching Profession and Equipping Teachers with Tools to Better Implement the New California Standards
Los Angeles teachers will gather at Loyola Marymount University on July 29 for the second annual Better Together: California Teachers Summit, a free statewide day of learning and networking that is open to all California PreK-12 teachers, teacher candidates, school administrators and other educators. One of 38 locations across the state, Loyola Marymount University invites LA teachers to share ideas, join a teacher network, and learn effective strategies for implementing the new California Standards in their classrooms. Running from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Summit will take place at 1 LMU Drive in Los Angeles. Click here for more details on the LMU site.
The Summit will feature keynote addresses from education leaders, including California teacher and author Kelly Gallagher and actor Ernie Hudson, TED-style EdTalks presented by local teachers, and Edcamp discussions on timely topics such as the California Standards in English/Language Arts and Math and the Next Generation Science Standards. Teachers will walk away with access to new resources and concrete tools that are already working in classrooms across the state.
A unique partnership between the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU), the California State University (CSU), and New Teacher Center formed to host this free statewide day of learning. Through their strong and distinct networks, the organizers will reach educators at every stage in their development: new and veteran teachers, current teaching students, and alumni.
