Each year the Department of Education hosts the Emerging Teacher Leaders Network (ETLN) conference for recent alumni. In the past, the ETLN conference has been for novice teachers in their first three years of teaching, but, beginning in 2017, we now invite alumni in their first five years of teaching back to campus for a time of fellowship and professional development.
Next year, the ETLN conference will be held on January 13th, 2018, on the campus of Wake Forest University as we invite our former students back to campus to celebrate their many accomplishments and allow them to visit with friends, former colleagues, and university instructors while considering new ideas and innovative practices to support their own classroom teaching and school leadership.
For more information, please email the conference coordinator, Ms. Tracy Stegman.
Thanks to Crystal Vandiver, Program Manager for Secondary English Language Arts in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, we have some amazing photos from the 2017 ETLN conference.
