October MAIN Event draws over 100 educators
"I look forward to this conference every year," was one of many positive comments about the day held at Groveland Elementary School in Minnetonka.
Break-out sessions, networking with grade level colleagues, and videos about immersion education in Minnesota were on the agenda.
Teachers and administrators from member schools attended free of charge. If your school does not have a membership, sign up today or renew.
Networking focuses on staffing immersion schools
Immersion educators met in late August for a MDE- and MAIN-sponsored meeting to discuss recent issues in teacher licensure and share success stories and resources.
The newly convened Teacher Licensure Task Force will be holding meetings throughout the fall to explore problems with the Basic Skills testing and to consider alternative pathways to licensure for non-native speakers of English who want to teach in Minnesota immersion schools.
Please join us for those meetings which are regularly scheduled on Thursday afternoons several times a month through January 2014. All dates, times, and location can be found on our calendar of events.
