      Road to Teaching Conference 2019

      On Saturday, November 16, 2019, Santa Ana College in collaboration with CSU Fullerton will host the 23rd Annual Road to Teaching Conference at Santa Ana College.  This conference is open to all high school, community college, university, and credential students interested in a career in teaching.  We are excited to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Mandy Manning, 2018 National Teacher of the Year. Mandy Manning teaches English to newly arrived refugee and immigrant students in the Newcomer Center at Joel E. Ferris High School in Spokane, Washington. In her classroom, Mandy uses experiential projects like map-making to help her students process trauma, celebrate their home countries and culture, and learn about their new community. As 2018 National Teacher of the Year, Mandy encourages educators to teach their students to overcome their fears and seek out new experiences. Mandy strives to create connections between her students and the community inside and outside of the school. Her students work in the student store and she encourages other students to visit and volunteer in the Newcomer Center. She also invites district leaders, campus resource officers, community members of color, and professional writers to visit her classroom. The visits help her students learn cultural expectations and how to express themselves effectively. In return, her students teach these leaders where they come from, who they are, and the beauty they add to the school district. “All of us together make this world interesting and good. We must teach our students to overcome their fears and seek out new experiences. The only way to teach fearlessness is to show it. We must show kindness by getting to know our students, learning about them, and showing them how to connect,” she says. The purpose of this conference is to encourage students to enter and continue in the field of teaching.  Students will be able to attend several workshops and learn from master teachers and current educators in the field.  Below are some of the many workshop topics we are planning to offer during the conference:  Pathways to Teaching for Students Classroom Management Strategies Technology in the Classroom Common Core Standards Math & Science Exploration New and Veteran Teachers Panel Landing a Teaching Job
