MTA’s Just For New Teachers (JFNT) 13th Annual Conference presents the perfect opportunity to meet with fellow educators. This one-day conference, brought to you by MTA’s New Member Committee, will offer workshops on classroom management and instruction, teaching English language learners and legal basics.

New this year is a free interactive workshop, The Skin that We Speak: Exploring Culture and Language in the Classroom and Beyond, presented by Beau Stubblefield-Tave, a principal in the Center for Cultural Fluency. This “bridge” workshop links the JFNT Conference to this year’s EMAC conference, which will celebrate the Ethnic Minority Affairs Committee’s 35th anniversary.
