Dear Faculty of Education members, I am excited to let you know that registrations for the two New Teachers’ Conferences 2019 are open now at the following link https://www.bctf.ca/NewTeachers.aspx Participants will have the opportunity to network with colleagues from all over the Province. There will be high quality workshops on a wide range of topics (Aboriginal Education, Special Education, TTOCs, French Education, New Curriculum, Inquiry, Social Justice and more) and vendors with their displays of freshly developed teaching material that align with the new curriculum. Both events will host a panel on Aboriginal Education discussing ways to infuse Aboriginal ways of being and learning in the classroom. Teacher Candidates and Faculty of Education members are encouraged to attend one or even both events. The registration fee for Teacher Candidates is only $30 which includes the Welcoming Reception, breakfast, lunch and coffee\tea break.
