Ontario English Catholic Teachers

Teachers as Leaders Conference


Our NEW Teachers as Leaders Conference is the inaugural event in our RISE: Member Engagement Series.

This two-day, in-person event is for all permanent and occasional Catholic teachers and is designed to empower YOU, a Catholic teacher at any point in your career, and provide you with the tools to engage on important issues – both as a classroom teacher and a union member.

Participants will participate in a variety of workshops that interest them, on topics that include:

  • accessibility, inclusion, diversity, and equity;
  • culturally responsive pedagogy;
  • effective communication;
  • maintaining professional boundaries;
  • mental health and wellness;
  • political advocacy and activism;
  • understanding your collective agreement;
  • your legal rights;
  • and more!

The event will take place at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Toronto on July 4, 5, 2022. (Note the date was postponed from the original planned date of April 2022.)
Registration for this event is now closed.
