Being a kindergarten teacher is one of the most rewarding careers. They play huge roles in shaping children for their futures. This career requires constant energy and creativity, as well as a great deal of effort outside the classroom. One way to keep up with the latest educational trends, without feeling like you are working at all, is to attend conferences for kindergarten teachers such as these five.
Staff Development for Education
Staff Development for Education is dedicated to providing educators with the latest tools, methods, and information in the field. They host many events throughout the year where teachers from all over the country can learn and grow while enjoying opportunities for networking and collaboration. They host two annual conferences that kindergarten teachers especially benefit from. The SDE Conference for Kindergarten Teachers takes places annually, each year in a different state. This event usually happens in December, so stay tuned for details of the 2019 and get excited for it by learning about this year’s Indiana Conference for Kindergarten Teachers. In the meantime, start planning for the 2019 SDE National Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada from July 8th to 12th. This event is packed full of academic research findings and hands-on learning about K-12 education.
Bureau of Education & Research
The Bureau of Education & Research (BER) is a great resource for locating the perfect conference in the perfect area. Teachers can visit the BER Events Search, click on the state in which they want to look for conferences, then click on the Preschool-6th Grade option to find conferences relevant to kindergarten teachers. BER also offers webinars and online conferences for those who require even more flexibility and convenience. With the rise of co-teaching in kindergarten classrooms, one specific event that teachers everywhere will benefit from is the BER Co-Teaching Conference, taking place on March 19th and 20th in Boston, Massachusetts.
Bank Street Graduate School of Education
The Bank Street Graduate School of Education invites students and seasoned teachers alike to attend the Teaching Kindergarten Conference. This event features keynote addresses from leaders in the field and many opportunities to collaborate around the topic of facilitating experiential learning with kindergarteners. This 2019 conference will be held on April 5th and 6th on the Bank Street campus in New York City, New York.
Dr. Jean’s Workshops
Dr. Jean Feldman is a beloved educator with over 40 years of early childhood education experience. She hosts a blog and offers a website with tools and resources for students and teachers. She attends many Conferences for Kindergarten Teachers throughout the year. Each week, Dr. Jean and Friends travels to a different state to run experiential workshops especially for kindergarten teachers at educational conferences. She and her colleagues share their latest tools and methods and provide attendees with support and information on how to implement them in their own classrooms. Most events take place on a Saturday and Sunday.
California Kindergarten Association Conference
Escape the winter cold and head to Santa Clara, California for the 2019 Annual California Kindergarten Association Conference. This exciting event is full of the field’s leaders (including the aforementioned Dr. Jean) not only from California, but from across the nation. Teachers from all states will hear cutting edge research findings and participate in enlightening break-out sessions. The event will take place from January 11th to the 13th. This is a great way to kick off the spring semester.
