Better Together: California Teachers Summit

Touro University California is partnering with St. Mary’s College of California in Moraga to support the Better Together: California Teachers Summit on July 31,2015. St. Mary’s is the host campus for this event. We are a co-host. Sonoma State is also hosting the event. Their campus may be closer to you. 

This summer, more than 20,000 teachers from across the state will gather for Better Together: California Teachers Summit, a one-of-a-kind event designed to help teachers like you build a powerful network of peers, share best practices and access effective resources to implement the new California Standards, including the Common Core. The FREE event will take place on Friday, July 31, 2015 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and will be held at 33 locations, including college and university campuses across the state.

We all agree teachers deserve more opportunities to connect with other teachers, share what’s working in classrooms and learn cutting edge strategies that will help them maximize their skills. That is why New Teacher Center, the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU) and California State University (CSU) have put together this unprecedented day of learning. The program will include presentations from nationally renowned speakers and discussions led by teachers and for teachers about new and innovative practices. You will walk away with access to resources and concrete tools you can immediately use in your classroom. A .5 unit continuing education credit will be available to interested teachers at a minimal cost.

We also know teachers want to hear and learn from one another. Please help spread the word to your colleagues about this first-ever opportunity.
