Have you made your plans for Groundhog Day?

February 2, 2013

Dear New Teacher Community,

You are all invited to our Winter Event on February 2, 2013 from 10:30am-1:30pm.  It will be in University Hall on the Porter Square Campus of Lesley University.  

Please RSVP by Monday, January 28 to:  
Elizabeth Symczak, or 617-349-8283.

"Keeping the Fire Alive: Staying Inspired Amid a Climate of Assessments and Standards," is an event that we hope will warm you up, inspire and sustain you as you make your way through your beginning years of teaching.  

Our inspiring panel of teachers represent K-12 grade levels and will lead us in thinking about how to sustain and nurture the joy and excitement that led you into teaching. We'll have time for conversation and discussion, yummy food (as always), door prizes, great resources to look at and certificates of attendance available for teachers who want them. 

Teachers!  Please bring an artifact from your classroom that shows us something that you are proud of.  It can be small step or a large one.  It can be a photo or the real item.  It can be a story.  Looking at what you've done well is a significant piece of remembering what's working. Building on that helps you to sustain yourself during challenging times.  

We are looking forward to a great event and hope that you will join us for what promises to be a wonderful day.

Best regards, 

Andi Edson
Director, Lesley University New Teacher Community
