Join Teachers United as they ignite inspiration for the 2014-2015 school year with an energizing day including a featured keynote by Rafe Esquith, opening speaker Erin Jones, skill building workshops, collegial discussions, and networking.
Which factor has the greatest influence on student achievement…class size, school funding or rigorous standards? The answer is D, none of the above. That’s because the quality of classroom teachers has the most significant influence by a wide margin.
Exceptional teachers inspire and motivate students, but it takes a village of educators to ensure success for all. Parent involvement is one of the features of high performing schools and, when teachers and parents work together, it has a positive effect on student achievement.
The same is true with regard to advocacy, which is why Teachers United seeks parent volunteers. Teachers United is a non-profit organization, dedicated to building an education worthy of our students, and will host the “Transformative Teaching Conference” at the University of Washington on August 14.
The Transformative Teaching Conference is a one-day event, featuring some of the state’s most distinguished educators.
