The ETAWA would like to invite early career, graduate and student teachers to a day of professional learning. In continuation with our State conference theme, we are expanding on the focus of Hearing VoicesAs an association of teachers, we want you to know that your voices are and will be heard and that our voices along with others in the field, would like to offer you some support along the way. Join us in celebrating our collegiality as English teachers on this day that is all about YOU!

Beginning your career as an English teacher can be a challenging time. This mini-conference will provide you with some useful tools and skills, as well as give you the opportunity to network and share your experiences with others.

On offer will be practical sessions covering topics such as: developing efficiency and avoiding burnoutestablishing reflective professional practicemaking differentiation manageable and gaining cultural pedagogical competency. You’ll also be introduced to some free resources for making teaching easier.

Each session will be facilitated by a leading English educator, and attendees are invited to share their own voices as well. Time will also be made available for a Q&A session for participants to ask those questions you might be reluctant to voice in your workplace.
