Welcome from the President

Welcome to Phi Delta Kappa Chapter 1524!

September 12, 2017

Greetings Kappans and Friends,

As the summer comes to a close, we would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a warm welcome to the 2017-2018 academic year. We look forward to the new term and feel wonderfully energized by the prospect of new beginnings. As a local chapter of Phi Delta Kappa (PDK) International, our mission is to provide professional development services to help cultivate great educators for tomorrow, while continuing to ensure high quality education for today.

We are especially pleased and excited to share with you an important development regarding our PDK workshops. As of this past spring, Phi Delta Kappa Chapter 1524 has become an approved New York State Sponsor of the Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) requirement. By attending and participating in our free Chapter workshops, you will receive credit for professional development hours.

We invite you to join us at this year’s workshops; the topics of which include: Certification Requirements, Overviews of edTPA Tasks 1 & 3, Preparing for Student Teaching, SMART Board Tools, and Strategies to Support ENL (English As A New Language Learners).

Please see the programs section for additional information about this year’s free professional development workshops and events, which are held on the LIU Post Campus in Brookville. We invite you to attend our free Chapter events to further your professional development.

Also, we would like to thank all of the members for their time and continued support. We look forward to seeing you at our next workshop.

With much appreciation,
Roberta Levitt & Lucille DeVito
