Future teachers to be nurtured through September conference

August 29, 2013 by  

The Teachers of Tomorrow Conference is taking place in Lansing shortly, and is a presentation of the Golden Apple Foundation.

The conference is aimed at those who wish to be teachers, but it will also have much to offer current teachers too. It will feature speeches such as the keynote speech from Rives Collins, workshops, raffles, lunch, and an informational expo. Guests will have the opportunity to take part in three workshop blocks throughout the day. Each block will be divided into the topics of Innovation and Creativity, Pedagogy, the Arts, and Technology. Workshops will carry such titles as ‘Sounds of Learning’, ‘Gearing up with Google’, and ‘Teaching with Passion in the Arts’.

During lunch, guests will have the chance to visit the expo, which will present information from various schools, organizations, and businesses. No doubt the entire conference will educate those interested in a career in teaching to the realities of the field and help to reignite the spark in current teachers.

It is likely that any informative materials handed out will have been printed by lansing printing companies. These might include flyers, brochures, and items from stationery printers, such as pens and notebooks.

The Teachers of Tomorrow Conference will take place at the Thornton Fractional South on September 21 from 8:30 am – 2:00 pm. Fees are $30 for teachers and college students or $15 for high schools students and parents. More information can be learned on the Golden Apple Foundation website.
