Your job is all about relationship, and you work to inspire educators by providing a balance of encouragement and constructive feedback. At your core, you want teachers to be successful and students to be learning to the max.

At convention, we want to you to have access to sessions, resources, and tools that will make your work a little easier while maximizing your big impact.  

 

“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 coaches:

  • “Is There No One Like Me?”: Enhancing Multicultural-Based Lessons
  • Badging Up: Coaching Through Digital Badges
  • The Power of Connections: Connecting Educators, Cultivating PLNs, and Redefining Educator Collaboration
  • Coaching Through Uncertainty: Sustain Support With Empathy
  • High Impact Instructional Strategies to Add to Your Teaching Toolbox
  • Leaders Coaching Teachers: How to Help Your School Leaders Lead by Example

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.
