Cheers to Teachers is a celebration of our incredible educators—a chance to gather, connect, and learn from one another through activities and conversation. Open to all K-12 educators, this virtual PD series will feature free, weekly workshops hosted each Wednesday in February. Additional opportunities and resources will be offered to attendees throughout the month. These workshops will enable teachers to connect with colleagues in Austin and beyond, participate in arts activities, and gain helpful tools to bring back to their classrooms (virtual or otherwise)—while having plenty of fun along the way!
This series is free and open to all K-12 educators. Good for up to 9 CPE credits (based on attendance). Advance registration is required. All events will be held on Zoom.
