Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version Share this

Teachers are invited to experience the
Texas Library Association Annual Conference
April 15-18, 2019 in Austin, TX.

Teacher applications will open soon.

What is Teacher Day@TLA?
Classroom teachers will have the opportunity to learn more about the value of teacher/librarian collaboration through specially designed activities, including conference sessions, guest speakers, and other engaging activities during a one-day special event during the TLA conference.

The focus of this program is for classroom teachers who experience a TLA conference, to return to their districts as library advocates and collaborators - and perhaps become librarians themselves.
Read about last year's event in the Texas Library Journal, Summer 2018, page 63.

What are teachers and librarians saying about Teacher Day@TLA?

"When students see their teachers and librarians working together, they recognize that reading and writing fit together and everyone is heading in the same direction".

"I'm submitting a plan to teach a session on graphic novels after going to the graphic novel panel and the Maverick List panel".

"This experience really opened my mind to the vastness of library resources and the true potential of these resources for ourselves and our students".

"Overall, the experience was fantastic! In 19 years of teaching, I've been to many conferences, and this was the best by far".
