Maine DOE announces teacher leadership summit

The Maine DOE is promoting the Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers (ECET2) summit at Colby College in Waterville on August 6-7.

The first annual teacher leadership summit hosted by the Maine Teacher of the Year Association will offer participants various opportunities to develop teacher leadership skills, to network with teachers from all of Maine’s 16 counties, and to recharge their batteries before the start of the school year.

Maine teachers are invited to attend the two-day event, which includes meals and overnight accommodations at no charge. Contact hours will be distributed at the end of the conference.

Teachers can register for the conference here.  For more information, or if you have questions about the summit, please contact Maine’s 2015 Teacher of the Year Jennifer Dorman at jdorman@msad54.org or Maine’s 2014 Teacher of the Year Karen MacDonald at macdok235@gmail.com.
