Special Education Directors,
Looking to provide your new special education teachers with the supports they’ll need for success? Teach Camp is here to help! Registration for Teach Camp is open until June 18, 2021 on a first-come, first-served basis using the link below.
Register for Teach Camp.
Teach Camp is a year-long support system that includes professional learning specifically designed for beginning special education teachers. The goal of Teach Camp is to increase retention of special educators by providing our newest special education teachers with the tools they need to survive and thrive during their first years in the classroom.
Teach Camp will launch virtually this summer and is designed for special education teachers who will begin their first, second, or third year of teaching special education in the fall of 2021. Because Teach Camp was not held this year, we are including third-year teachers in this year’s camp. Recent graduates from traditional teacher preparation programs, alternative certified teachers, and veteran general education teachers transitioning to special education are all welcome.
The cost of participation in Teach Camp is $150 and includes a three-day virtual summer “camp” from July 7–9, 2021, three after-school webinars with national speakers, and a one-day, in-person session in May 2022. Each camper will receive a copy of The Survival Guide for New Special Education Teachers, a one-year membership to the Council for Exceptional Children, and additional valuable resources.
