We have partnered with our friends at Upbeat to establish the second cohort of the National Working Group on Teacher Retention, and you are invited to join! In this unprecedented time, it's not hyperbolic to say this year will be the most stressful year the teaching profession has seen. Given this upcoming challenge, the cohort this year will be focused on ways we can support teachers whether they are remote, hybrid or in-person. Key themes will be teacher wellness, mental health and PD supports
By signing up for the National Working Group on Teacher Retention, you would be agreeing to:
- Attend the no-cost virtual inaugural convening from 11:00 AM to 3:30 PM (Eastern Time) on Monday, 10/26/20 (just before the opening of the AAEE 2020 virtual conference) on Zoom; please note that paid AAEE conference registration is a prerequisite for participating in this pre-conference activity
- Attend bi-monthly virtual working group meetings centered around a problem of practice and become part of an online community with goal of supporting each other’s goals on teacher retention
- Participate in a Summer 2021 virtual convening (June or July) to discuss key learnings from SY20-21 and develop plans for SY21-22
- Attend the AAEE Annual Conference and Education Career Fair in Fall 2021 to review the successes and key learnings of the working group. The working group will share key data and outcomes from their work at a conference presentation.
Only 25 Spots!
Once the 25 spots have been filled, your registration will be placed on a waitlist, and you will be contacted in the event that one of the previously registered participants can no longer participate.
We need to come together in this difficult time! Have more questions about the working group? Contact Upbeat directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
