Trenton Public Schools (TPS) Teachers Highlight Their Instructional Leadership

On Saturday, March 7, 2015, teacher teams from Columbus ES, Grant ES, Jefferson ES, Kilmer MS, and Rivera MS participated in the Annual NJEA Priority School Conference in East Windsor, NJ. With New Jersey school teams of 4 teachers and more in attendance, Trenton Education Association (TEA), TPS administration, and Principals Wood, LLano, Britt, Trapp, and Bethea proudly championed this NJEA led and teacher facilitated conference. The teacher created and facilitated sessions included the following topics: PARCC Readiness, Going Above and Beyond, Class Dojo for Middle School, Implementing Socratic Seminars, Empowering Youth as Change Agents, Making Questions Work in Your Classroom, Move on Up, The Rewards of Positive Reinforcement, Collaboration, Integrating Character Education into the Middle School, and Google Made Easy. The robust session offerings indicate the instructional substance undergirding this professional development event. Three notable presentations were led by TPS Educators:
