Save the Date

The Educators Rising National Conference 2019 will take place June 22–25, 2019, in Dallas, Texas. Everyone is invited to participate in this action-packed event filled with networking, learning, competing, and celebrating; please note, students must be paid, Active-level members of Educators Rising in order to participate. It's an opportunity for students and their teacher leaders to:

  • Connect and learn from each other through breakout workshops;
  • Compete for national titles in 20 competitive events designed to allow students to develop and showcase their teaching skills; and
  • Be inspired by keynote presentations from national education leaders.

This year's conference theme: 

There's power in student voice. Today our students find themselves at the center of many of the biggest flashpoints in education. Rising educators have valuable insights to share about the state of education, but many don’t know how to get involved. At this year’s Educators Rising National Conference, we will focus on allowing students the time and space to make their voices heard on the important issues facing them both as current students and future teachers! #UseYourVoice #EdRising19

The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency Dallas. Conference registration is now open. View the draft program book to learn more about the conference, and be sure to check the EdRising Virtual Campus frequently for more details. Please note that in an effort to go green this year, we will not be providing a printed program book. We will instead be providing a conference app and a pdf version of the program book. If you need a printed version, be sure to print a copy before you arrive. Download the program book now.

Conquering Public Speaking 101
When surveyed about their top concerns, the greatest common fear has been cited as public speaking – even over death. As teachers, educators, and public servants we are asked to speak in public all the time, but we don’t often train to speak to groups other than a classroom. In this session we will begin the discussion of how to become a better speaker by learning some mechanics around creating a dynamic presentation, understanding fear and its place in successful presentations, and learning about where confidence comes from as you present. Participants will have a chance to practice in safe small groups, offer and be offered critique and encouragement, and learn what next steps are necessary to become a better presenter. Albert Chen, PDK’s current COO has trained thousands of speakers at all levels to be the best they can be in front of an audience, join us and begin your own path as a successful public speaker (2 hours).

Session Date and Time
Sunday, June 23  -  10:00 am - 12:00 pm
 
Registration Fee: $59.95 (18 slots available!)
