This year's conference will build the power and impact of on-the-ground educators across Philadelphia by creating space for you to learn, connect with each other and develop the skills necessary to transform education in our city, both within classrooms and beyond those walls.
We're excited to have Lois Weiner as our keynote speaker this year. Lois Weiner, author of The Future of Our Schools, is a life-long teacher union activist and educator and has been an officer of three union locals. She is internationally known for her work on urban teacher education and is a powerful voice for the possibility of teacher unions to transform public education landscapes.
Also at the conference, there will be opportunities to participate in a diverse group of workshops, presented in tracks that represent TAG's ares of work. These include teaching and learning, media justice and organizing to build power. Content area meet ups will happen during lunch and tables with curriculum resources will be available throughout the day.
We are currently looking for THREE different categories of people: Resource Tablers, Workshop Presenters, and Volunteers. If you have already been in touch with Jaimie Stevenson and/or Sarah Burgess about presenting a workshop, you do NOT need to fill out this form. Similarly, if you have already been in touch with Hanako Franz about tabling, you do NOT need to fill out this form.
