Spring Conference Recap!

On April 30, NJCTE was thrilled to host its first in-person conference in two years at Pascack Valley High School! Celebrating the theme of “Literacy for Living,” the day kicked off with poet Amanda Crane’s reading of poems about teaching and learning. Then, participants experienced amazing teacher-led workshops in three sessions throughout the day. After lunch, author Jeff Zentner was awarded the prestigious NJCTE Becker Award and signed books for attendees. NJCTE members Deborah Bartley-Carter and Alexandria Lefkovits were awarded Teacher for the Dream awards, Dr. Darlene Russell was awarded the Educator of the Year award, and prizes were raffled off to cap the day of collaboration, learning and fun! See photos below for a taste of the day.
