NYSUT's Take a Look at Teaching summits in urban, rural, and suburban communities across the state are aimed at cultivating relationships and exploring solutions to the teacher shortage and teacher diversity challenges facing our schools. These events are focused on bringing the right people to the table, speaking with students about their needs and experiences, and changing the narrative about teaching — highlighting the benefits of a rewarding career in education.
Summits are in the works for Spring 2020. Watch this space for more information
Previous summits took place in Syracuse, Buffalo, Potsdam, Rochester, Albany, Yonkers and Riverhead.
Interested in hosting a local campus conversation on teacher recruitment and retention?
NYSUT's new Campus Conversation Toolkit helps local union leaders work with community partners to plan events.
Goals include strengthening partnerships between educator preparation programs and P-12 schools; expanding student knowledge about the teaching profession; and encouraging future teachers/career changers to teach needed subject areas and in hard-to-staff districts.
To RSVP to an event or for guidance on how to start your own local campus conversation, please contact Greg McCrea at: email@example.com, 518-213-6000, X6557.
