Activate Your Activism

If you are a college or university student preparing to become a teacher, you won’t want to miss the NJEA Preservice Conference on April 18. It will take place at the Heldrich Hotel and Conference Center in New Brunswick. The day starts at 8 a.m. with registration and a continental breakfast. Lunch is also provided. The day concludes at 3 p.m.

Come hear from New Jersey State Teacher of the Year Kimberly Dickstein Hughes and your NJEA Preservice officers. Learn how to “activate your activism” around issues that matter to you and your future, including racial and social justice, student loan debt, LGBTQ+ curriculum and immigration rights.

Workshops include:

  • EdTPA Q&A
  • Landing Your First Job
  •  LGBTQ+ Curriculum Inclusion
  • Technology: Motivating Responsible Use and Preventing Digital Abuse
  • Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs): Part 1 and Part 2

Nominations for NJEA Preservice officers for the 2020-21 school year will also take place.

If you are a cooperating teacher working with preservice educators in your school, or a college/university faculty member preparing future teachers, make sure to let them know about NJEA Preservice and this conference.

Registration and more details will be forthcoming at njea.org/preservice.
