East Hartford Public Schools has partnered with an organization, Fund for Teachers, which provides educators the financial resources needed.

Funds for Teachers

East Hartford Public Schools has partnered with an organization, Fund for Teachers, which provides educators the financial resources needed to pursue self-designed professional learning experiences that create enhanced learning environments for teachers, their students and the community in which you work.  Fund for Teachers is hoping to receive 400 applications from teachers across Connecticut to fund summer fellowship opportunities for the summer of 2016.  Individual teachers may apply for up to $5,000 and teams may apply for up to $10,000. 

To be eligible you must be employed as a certified teacher, Pre-K to Grade 12 with at least 3 years of experience and spend at least 50% of your work week in direct instruction with students.  The application will be available October 1st and the deadline is January 28, 2016.  This is an incredible opportunity for you to develop your own professional learning plan that can be supported with funding!  I’ve attached two documents summarizing the program and also providing you with examples of what 13 Connecticut teachers did this summer with funding from Fund for TePreview Postachers to give you an idea of the types of opportunities you can pursue.  More information will be shared in the coming weeks but we wanted staff to begin thinking about this opportunity and drafting your application if you are interested.  It is also a great way to tie in your TEVAL goals with your professional development. 

To learn more about this organization please visit their website: http://fundforteachers.org/ and view this video FFT video 

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions as I have contacts at Fund for Teachers that should be able to help us.  Thank you.

The Third Annual "Day of Choice" will be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2015, Staff Development Day. Proposals are being accepted through Friday, September 11, 2015.

Click on the blue title above for more information.

Attention: All Certified Staff 

Staff Development Day:  November 3, 2015 - Day of Choice

I am very excited to inform you that due to popular demand, the November 3, 2015, staff development day, has been dedicated as the “Day of Choice” by the East Hartford Professional Development Committee.  The committee is comprised of 15 members including teachers and administrators from the elementary, secondary and district levels and is dedicated to providing all of you with opportunities for professional growth.   We are seeking activity proposals to be developed and facilitated by East Hartford’s talented staff. This is not a time to do general work but a time to provide opportunities for professional growth. Proposals must be submitted by September 11, 2015.  The Professional Development Committee will review and select proposals on September 18, 2015. As you can see, the process will begin very soon after the start of the 2015-16 school year, and therefore, putting the wheels in motion now is critical to a successful professional development day.  Please consider submitting a proposal!

According to responses on the 2015 PD Survey, educators from across the entire district specified that they would benefit from the following professional development opportunities: 

  • Differentiating instruction to meet the needs of all students,
  • Identifying and implementing effective methods  for improving student behavior in the classroom, and
  • Using technological resources to improve teaching practice and student learning.

Please note – The hope is to address the needs of educators as specified above. However, this list certainly does not exclude other possibilities that you see as valuable to other educators.  An additional option for this year will be a full day opportunity offered in two parts (new learning in the AM and application in the PM).


Please complete and submit the Day of Choice Proposal Form.  Proposals will be accepted from now until September 11, 2015.
I encourage you to share your expertise with your colleagues!!  You certainly may facilitate an activity with a partner. The success of “Day of Choice” has always been the result of the outstanding activities presented by East Hartford’s exceptional staff!
 

My sincere thanks go out to all members of the Professional Development Committee for their commitment to professional growth opportunities for all East Hartford staff:  Jessica Bartolini, Marcia Ferreira, Annie Irvine, A. J. LaPlant, Ann Marie Mancini, Michelle Marion, Rob Monte, Lesley Morgan-Thompson, Nate Quesnel, Cynthia Ritchie, Teddi Sablon-Tauris, Pam Schachter, Chris Sparks, Chris Wethje, and Laura White.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. I am more than willing to brainstorm ideas and guide you through the process.

Thank you for all that you do!

Be well,

Marcia Huddy
Supervisor of Program Development
