    It has been a busy yet impactful summer at ATE. Time has zoomed  by since my last blog. Sorry...I could not resist! I need to laugh about all of the Zoom/Teams/Webex meetings I have been in over the last few months or I might cry! I’m sure a good number of you can empathize. I hope that each of you are doing well and taking care of yourself and each other.

    Our summer conference planning committee did an amazing job of pivoting to an online conference that was just as engaging and enlightening as you come to expect from an ATE conference. Kudos to the team!
    In response to unrest across the country, ATE released a position statement on racial equity. You can find that statement on the landing page of the ATE website. This was followed by a culminating session at the summer conference in August led by Charlene Johnson and Carrie Robinson titled Institutional Racism in Education: Truth, Trust, Courage and Empowerment Needed to Promote Social Justice and Equitable Educational Practice. This engaging session was the perfect kick off to our planned dialogue centered on the social justice and educational equity. Stay tuned for more to come on this series.

    ATE collaborated with NAPDS on two webinars “Clinical Practice during Covid-19”. These webinars filled quickly showing an incredible need for educators to talk about what is going on in their clinical practice and garner ideas from others’ experiences. Attendees shared ideas and strategies on everything from alternative field placements to online teaching professional development for both faculty and teacher candidates.

    It also brought to bear the immense need for advocacy in the realm of Educator preparation. We need to be regularly working with our state agencies so that when we need to work together on an issue like this, the relationship has a stable foundation on which to build.

    Our Strategic Planning process continues into the fall with workgroups developing goals and action steps complimented by the information garnered through focus groups and surveys this spring and summer. The hope is that this work will finish before the end of the year so that our plan can be showcased at ATE’s 2021 Annual Meeting.

    Let me start by saying I hope each of you are safe and well. In the last few weeks, there has been a lot of behind the scenes work happening at ATE. After delicate contract negotiations by John McIntyre (Meetings Coordinator) and Alisa Chapman (ATE Executive Director), we are now able to say that our Summer 2020 conference will be ONLINE! We are excited to offer our conference in this format and look forward to seeing you there! As we move along in the process, be sure to visit our conference webpage to stay up to date.

    Presidential Points to Ponder

    I am sharing some statements that have resonated with me during this pandemic. I will post these on our social media sites so that you can share your thoughts, ideas, and ponderings. Join in the conversation!

    • Teachers work hard and they are finally getting a small measure of the recognition they deserve.
    • Amidst an already grave teacher shortage, 20% of teachers may not return to their classrooms if schools reopen in the fall.
    • The digital divide has become glaringly apparent and we can no longer hide from the disparity it causes in the academic achievement of our children.

    There is no more important time for us to be welcoming those under the big umbrella.

    If you’re not sure what this refers to, check out my powerpoint presentation from Atlantic City!!


    Take care, be safe. All my best!

    Wow. It is hard to believe only a month has passed since our festive gathering for the annual meeting in Atlantic City. It certainly feels like a longer period of time given how much things have changed. First, let me start by saying I hope all of you are safe and well. Just as many of you are, I am spending the majority of my time at home communicating via email, meeting via zoom, making sure pieces are in place for our student teachers to graduate, and developing a Plan B for fall if needed. Please know that the ATE leadership is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and are considering possible alternatives for our summer conference (i.e. possibly hybrid or online formats). More news to come on that front. Please do not let the uncertainty deter you from submitting a proposal. The link for submitting proposals is here:
