After much conversation and zoom meetings the Pennsylvania Council of Teachers of English and Language Arts (PCTELA) Board decided to go ahead with the planned 2021 conference. This year it will be held in Harrisburg, a 40 minute drive for me, on October 22 – 23. It promises to be an exciting and informative conference.
I know our conference chairs have worked hard gathering speakers and planning breakout sessions. The conference title is:
Because some people may not yet feel comfortable gathering in a group attendance can be in person or virtual. This can also help for those who wish to attend but their district may be cutting back on sending teachers to conferences. For those registering for the online conference, the content will be available through the end of 2021.
Our conference chairs have gathered up some great speakers for the conference, some who will speak in person while others will speak virtually:
Breakout sessions haven’t been announced yet, but I have seen the list of those who have applied. All I can say is that I can’t wait. It will be difficult to choose which sessions to attend.
Yes, I have already registered for the conference and made my hotel reservation through the pctela.org website. It will be great to see friends I haven’t seen in over a year, have some meals with them, and learn some new things along side them. Hope many others will be able to attend.
If it sounds like I am excited, I am.
