Antioch University Los Angeles has been chosen as one of more than 30 sites in California to host the Third Annual Better Together: California Teachers Summit, a free statewide day of learning on Friday, July 28, 2017. It is open to all California PreK-12 teachers, teacher candidates, school administrators, and other educators.
Thousands of teachers from across California will participate in this FREE day of learning featuring a TED-style EdTalk presented by a local teacher and Edcamp discussions led by teachers, for teachers. Dr. Jill Biden will be the key note speaker. A lifelong educator, Dr. Biden has seen firsthand how great teachers can change the lives of students for the better.
“This will be an amazing opportunity to interact with other teachers, have a meal, and listen to outstanding educators like our own Greg Bryant, Sylvie Taylor, and Fred Chapel,” said Education Department Chair Cynthia McDermott.
California teachers are working hard to foster inclusive classrooms, spark learning and equip all students to succeed. Now more than ever, teachers deserve an opportunity to come together and share ways to support our students, protect our values as educators and set an example for the nation. Participants will walk away from the Summit with access to the latest strategies and tools they can bring back to their classroom, and connect to a lasting and powerful network of peers.
