Elementary Teachers (PreK-5):

Their journey starts with you.

You have many things to think about, all while instructing, managing, differentiating, accommodating, assessing, and so much more. Your job is huge, and you work harder than hard. You aren’t just engaging young minds in their learning. You partner with students and their parents and guardians to build a foundation that students will grow on for years to come.

Our youngest learners grow to love learning, starting with you.

At convention, we want you to have the opportunity to invest in you and your unique professional goals, objectives, and interests. And we want you to leave with resources, tools, and strategies that will make your job a little easier and get you great results with your students.

“I was able to make contact with other session attendees afterward to bounce ideas off of each other. In the current climate, to be able to connect with others in this way, was a gift.”  -Aimee

You Pick Your Sessions

Learning. Lots of it.

With hundreds of sessions to choose from, you’ll expand your learning and grow your expertise. It’s not all about quantity, though. Quality matters! That’s why we provide research-based, data-driven sessions led by experts in the field. Attend sessions. Implement solutions. Get results. And you choose which sessions to attend based on your goals and interests.

Here are just a few of the many sessions specifically designed for elementary educators:

  • Track Your Students; fluency with the New Reading Progress in Teams Assignments
  • Empowering Student Voice and Emphasizing Strengths in Elementary Grades
  • Blended Learning is More than Centers (K-6)
  • Explore Social-Emotional Learning, Mindfulness, and Mindful Movement
  • Choice Boards for All! Providing Choice and Voice for Our Youngest Learners
  • Fostering Self-Regulation Skills and Personalized Learning in an Elementary Setting

Whether you are attending all four days of the convention or packing as much learning as possible into just a few, your time at the 2022 TCEA Convention & Exposition will be filled with innovative presentations, incredible opportunities for connection, and valuable experiences. Plus, this year we are offering two distinct online session packages focusing on Bridging the Learning Gap and Social-Emotional Learning that you can watch through March 11.

Four Days of Inspiration

Speakers that deliver.

It’s what we’re known for. Not only will you leave with ideas and the resources to implement them in your classroom tomorrow, you’ll also be engaged, energized, and transformed by the diverse speakers featured every single day. Past speakers have included groundbreakers like Mae Jemison and Marlee Martin, along with the ever-so-comical Gerry Brooks. Curious to know who will inspire you this year? Go ahead. Take a look at some speakers who will, no doubt, uplift you and encourage you in your work. Follow them on Twitter to get your excitement started early!
