EWEA at the NJEA Convention

| 0 comments

Our members and EWEA leaders took full advantage of the recent NJEA Convention in Atlantic City. Yes…there was some outlet shopping, but there was a lot more learning! Members attended many workshops on subjects as varied as the PARRC Assessment and working with students with autism.

Leadership attended a family breakfast, a brunch hosted by SOGI (Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity) who shared valuable information for our members and students. Then it was off to the Urban Education Luncheon where we listened to an EXTRAORDINARY, motivating, speech by activist Larry Hamm, who is worth a goggle search (put in activist to get the right one :).

If that wasn’t enough, the afternoon ended with the always fun Mercer County Social…great food, friends and fun. And if THAT wasn’t enough, President Ellen Ogintz and First Vice-President Chris Carpenter attended the NJEA leadership dinner. Yikes!

All in all, the convention provided members with an opportunity to learn, grow, meet, greet and feel GOOD about what we do. It was worth it just for that.
