More great professional development, trainings, and wellness sessions planned for our members

Start with our T-TESS training on Oct. 28

Our national union, the American Federation of Teachers, this week awarded Texas AFT an Innovation Fund grant that will help create more wellness sessions in the future. (You may recall our hit virtual sessions on meditation, yoga and Zumba this summer in our Wellness Wednesday series.) The grant also will help fund our work to get more teachers into National Board Certification programs, intensive and research-based training to improve their effectiveness in the classroom.

In the near term, we are offering a T-TESS virtual training on Wednesday, October 28, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Confused by the Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System (T-TESS)? This session will discuss the four domains in the system and educate teachers about what their administrators will be looking for during their formal observations. The session also discusses how to gather artifacts for the end of year conference. Register for this free training here.
