AFT is holding its annual Share My Lesson Conference this year on March 21 through March 24.
The event will include a large attendance of pre-K through college-level educators, specialized instructional support staff, paraprofessionals, parents, and caregivers from all over the world to engage with union members for professional development.
The conference has nearly 50 free webinars scheduled, touching on a variety of relevant topics, including: building community & classroom engagement; current events, history, and media literacy; diversity, equity, and inclusion; social-emotional learning and mental health; and more! AFT union president Randi Weingarten will deliver a keynote speech on “The State of Public Education.” There will also be a teacher-led panel on how “Teachers Unify to End Gun Violence” and a keynote from U.S. Congresswoman Jahana Hayes on the “Freedom to Teach Honestly” in public schools.
The conference also features a Self-Care Giveaway, where registered attendees have the opportunity to win one of three self-care packages, ranging from $50 to $159 worth of prizes! If you register for the conference and attend any of the nearly 50 webinars, you will earn one hour of professional development credit.
