The Educator's Room Conference- "Empowering Teachers as the Experts"

About Franchesca Warren

For fifteen years Franchesca taught English/Language Arts in two urban districts in Atlanta, Georgia, and Memphis, Tennessee. Increasingly frustrated with decisions being made about public education from people who were not in the classroom, in 2012 she decided to start a blog about what it was really like to teach in public schools. In the last four years, The Educator's Room has grown to become the premiere source for resources, tools, and strategies for all things teaching and learning.

For the past two years, the entire staff at The Educator’s Room has been living with the belief that the true experts in education are classroom teachers. We are the ones who for at least 180 days of every academic year dedicate our time, energy and money to educating children. Every morning we get up ready to face our children and impart with them the principles they need to make it in these changing times. Despite all we do for students many times our best is not respected, valued or  considered. So what do we do? We continue to fight and let our voices be heard  and for the past 24 months, The Educator’s Room has been dedicated to bringing your voice to the masses.

We are a publication written by real teachers  about real issues happening in the classroom.

Six months ago at the TER Headquarters we were looking for educational conferences, but  were disappointed that many of the presenters  at these conferences weren’t teachers after all. Instead they were  either consultants or speakers who had not stepped foot in a classroom in  this decade. This got our minds turning and we decided to ask the obvious– What if we created a conference for teachers by  teachers?   After a lot of talk we decided that not only could we do it, but we would do it in an environment where rich discussions, panels and workshops could take place JUST for EDUCATORS.

Hence the 2014 The Educator’s Room Conference was born. In order to make sure our roots were organic as possible, we decided to solicit to our 14, 000 readers for workshop proposals and the results stunned us. We received hundreds of submissions from educators who were anxious to share their expertise with their colleagues from around the world. After reviewing all of the submissions, we decided to  not only ask a set of dynamic educators to come and present, but we were able to secure Superintendent and Author of  “The Exhaustion of the American Teacher”, John Kuhn as our Keynote Speaker.

If that’s not enough, we are still  adding more workshops, speakers and networking activities for our teachers to enjoy for their three day stay in beautiful Atlanta, Georgia.   For all that we are offering it’s unheard of that tickets are currently going at $175 for  limited time ! That’s unbelievable for a three day conference where teachers will receive PLUs (more on that later) and great knowledge from their peers!
