One of the key objectives of 2019 conference is to disseminate curriculum FAEAC has worked to develop, in partnership with the Welga Project and the Bataan Legacy Historical Society on Filipino heritage and contributions, in schools and communities, as well as to provide space for Filipino American Ethnic Studies advocates to share their curriculum and pedagogical approaches especially as the conference immediately precedes Filipino American History Month.
Additionally, the conference aims to further FAEAC’s mission which is to promote professional interest and welfare of Filipino American teachers; establish a stronger network of Filipino American educators and serve as a forum for leadership; influence and affect local and statewide educational policy, provide a vehicle, national in scope, for the Association to support and enhance the education of Filipino American students and establish active participation and involvement of Filipino American parents, educators, community groups and other professionals to work collaboratively with Filipino American youth groups.
We will consider presentations for the following strands in connection to our conference theme:- Leadership Development for Filipino American Educators from PreK- University.- Curriculum and Instruction/Teaching and Learning - Pedagogical strategies and curriculum that promote Filipino- American identity and equity for all students.- Well-being and Mental Health- Migrant Teacher Support
