ECET2 - New Year-Renew You! Application


Congratulations! You are a teacher leader in Montana. You are invited to apply to attend our ECET2-MT-2018 event on January 6-7, 2018 in Great Falls and join other highly motivated educators from across the state. . If you are selected, all expenses are paid. We will gather the afternoon of Saturday, January 6th and conclude early afternoon on Sunday, January 7th.

This year will mark our fourth annual ECET2-Montana convening: Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teachers & Teaching, sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Montana Professional Teaching Foundation and MEA-MFT. If you are unfamiliar with our ECET2 events,  you can read about our first gathering in Billings in 2014, and the 2015 gathering in Missoula.

The goals of ECET2-MT-2018 are to 1) celebrate your accomplishments, 2) share innovative teaching practices, 3) brainstorm ways we teachers can lead without leaving our classrooms and 4) discuss the challenges & opportunities of Title I schools. It is a conference designed by teachers for teachers.

This year we are asking every participant to bring an “accountability partner” with them. Choose a like-minded teacher who motivates you, encourages you, and keeps you moving forward in our profession. This might be the teacher next door, but it also might be a Montana teacher you’ve only met through Twitter chats. The teacher you choose must be new to ECET2! Before you name this person, please ask them if they will be available to attend with you. If not, choose another teacher. Please share the application with your "accountability partner".  

ECET2 will be presented to you free of charge, however, due to the high costs teachers will be sharing a hotel room. If you select a single room, you will be asked to pay $54.50 at ECET2 registration.
