Professional Development Opportunities
Professional Development needs to be a part of everyone’s life as an educator. In Little Egg Harbor Twp School District you are encouraged to continue your education through on-line instruction, ETTC, courses through the LEH Academy, South Jersey Academy, PLC weekly meetings, NEA Academy and through NJEA Professional Learning website. These are links provided for you to begin your continuing education:
NJEA offers many workshops at their annual NJEA Statewide Convention. This year it will be held on November 7 & 8 in the Convention Hall, Atlantic City. Please make sure that you read NJEA Review magazine to get the list of workshops. Through-out the day, on the floor of Convention Hall there is a section entitled Technology Integration Showplace. In this section of Convention Hall, teachers across the State will be giving workshops through-out the day. If you have a few minutes between the scheduled workshops in the upstairs room, you will want to come here to find out what other teachers are doing in their classrooms.
On November 7 at 4:00 P. M. – 6:00 P. M., Ocean County Council Education Association (OCCEA) will be hosting a Hospitality Suite in the Sheridan Hotel (across the street from Convention Hall). Please come and sit awhile to talk with educators from Ocean County while having dinner. It will be a great way to end your long day at the Convention.
Then there are the NJEA Winter Leadership Conferences. NJEA provides three different venues, South – Central – North, locations so that all members will be able to attend no matter where in the State that they live. These workshops concentrate on educating members to help their local association’s members.
There are so many opportunities that NJEA offers their members through-out the year such as:
- NJEA Jim George Conference – October
- NJEA ESP Conference – February
- NJEA Higher Education Conference – April
- Minority Leadership Conference – April
- NJEA Technology Conference – July
I am sure there is something that you will find to be outstanding in your continuing education as a professional.
