Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers

ECET2 New Jersey & Pennsylvania

ECET2 stands for Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers. It was born out of a desire to provide a forum for exceptional teachers to learn from one another and to celebrate the teaching profession. The convening experience is designed to inform and inspire colleagues, develop attendees’ leadership potential, and hone their craft.

Our convening, modeled after the national ECET2, is committed to growing, nurturing, and leveraging the abilities of each individual educator in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

The ECET2NJPA 2016 theme is: The Strength is in the Room. Our focus is on using the combined power of each invitee to collectively strengthen individual pedagogy, knowledge, relationships, and trust. Every person in each classroom working together makes the entire population better. When educators share openly, vulnerably, in a trusting environment, where the focus is on supporting the profession as a whole, students and their families prosper. Our goal is to empower, challenge, and celebrate each attendee in the room to share their story, support their peers, and re-invest in their colleagues when they return from our room to theirs.
