The Teacher’s Academy is Heading to Hershey!
Pennsylvania Educational Technology Expo and Conference Welcomes The Teacher’s Academy
Hey, Teachers! It is that time of year again! The Teacher’s Academy is super excited to attend the Pennsylvania Educational Technology and Expo Conference! We love learning about the new educational technologies available (or soon to be available) and getting inspired by motivational speakers! The exhibits, workshops and keynote speakers give us an opportunity to recharge and gather new ideas for the following year. It’s also the perfect chance to celebrate all you hard-working teachers. This year we will be giving away several inspirational prizes and promoting our Teacher Feature opportunities.
Free books for your class library- Booth 122!
As part of our out-reach program, The Teacher’s Academy will be handing out free books to teachers who stop by our booth. We have gathered gently used books from classrooms that have gone digital, teachers who have left the industry and other donations. Our hope is that these lovely treasures find new homes in the hands of curious readers all across the tri-state area. We have a limited number of books so visit booth #122 as soon as you can on Monday!
30+ Winners in The Teacher’s Academy Drawing!
PETE & C is the place for sharing ideas, getting inspired and putting what works for others into your own practice. That’s why this year we are rewarding teachers for their ideas!
To celebrate teachers, we will be giving away three (3) $50 Amazon Gift Cards and thirty (30) light-hearted, inspirational copies of A Tribute to Teachers, signed by Richard Lederer. To be entered into the drawing, simply fill out our postcard and write your favorite teaching practices, a bit of advice or a techy idea that works in your classroom! After the conference, EVERYONE’S ideas will be featured in our upcoming blog, “After the PETE: Advice and Ideas from PA teachers.” We hope to encourage as many teachers as possible to participate in sharing their ideas and winning prizes!
Do you have what it takes to be a Teacher Feature?
The Teacher’s Academy celebrates teachers every month by sharing their cutting edge practices with thousands of other teachers across the nation. Our blog post, “Teacher Feature” has been an amazing way to transfer expert strategies, resources and tips, from inside the classroom, to teachers everywhere. So far, we have encountered teachers who use social media for enrichment purposes, cope with the loss of their arts program, share the very best free tech resources, use the world outside to experience real science and much more. We know teachers are the most creative and innovative thinkers and above all, love to share their ideas.
Why nominate myself for a Teacher Feature?
This year, we will be inviting all of the teachers we meet at the PETE conference, to nominate teachers for our 2016-2017 Teacher Feature blog. Why not nominate yourself or someone else for this great honor?
- Unique strategies and approaches to teaching and classroom management will be shared with others.
- Your story is likely someone else’s. Sharing it will only help other teachers looking for inspiration.
- You work hard and a little (positive) media publicity never hurt anyone! Once the blog is written, you can read, make edits and changes and have the final say before it gets posted! Then, we hope you share your publication with your peers. People should know the impact you have on your students!
The Teacher’s Academy celebrates teachers. As teachers ourselves, we understand how difficult it is to find relevant professional development that’s convenient and affordable. Check out our courses (written by teachers) to help satisfy your PD needs. All of our courses Act 48 Approved. As a matter of fact, you may already know us in PA as Act 48 Academy!
The PETE conference in Hershey, PA is an incredible event for anyone in education. Meet new educators from Harrisburg, Philadelphia, Scranton, Allentown, Pittsburgh, to name a few, and share your teaching experiences! Being in Hershey makes it that much sweeter!
So, stop by booth #122 and meet the hard-working PA teachers who want to help make these few days in Hershey fun (and rewarding) for you! Can’t wait to see you there! (Tell us you read the blog and there’s something special in it for you!)
