Better Together: California Teachers Summit brings together 20,000 teachers at 33 locations across the state on July 31 to build a powerful network of peers across regions, share best practices and access effective resources to implement the new California Standards. Here in Los Angeles, the Summit is at the Pasadena Convention Center. The free day of learning is a first-of-its-kind event where teachers learn from other teachers. Through Ed Talks teachers will offer funny, inspiring, and poignant perspectives about their successes with implementation of the California Standards. Teachers will come away with concrete tools and strategies and build a network of colleagues from their region to support future collaboration. A .5 unit continuing education credit will be available at a minimal cost. Visit CATeachersSummit.com to register and learn more.
