Term 3 Professional Development: Early Career Teacher Series
Yes, you can teach English and have a life!

Time: 4:15pm – 6:30pm
Location: Newman College, 216 Empire Avenue Churchlands in the Marist Auditorium
There is no denying that the workload of English teachers can seem insurmountable at times. With
marking seeming to roll through in waves, all crashing down at once, it is easy to lose sight of the
importance of quality teaching and learning, establishing meaningful relationships with students and
finding time among the competing demands to recharge. This PD series aims to provide you with a
moment to pause and reflect; to take a step back and consider the craft of teaching as well as ways
that your time can be used effectively. Each session has been purposefully designed based on
feedback from Early Career Teachers to ensure they are meaningful, responsive and relevant to all
English and Literature teachers in the first few years of their teaching careers. Attendance is not
limited to first-year teachers, anyone with a keen interest in these areas is welcome to attend.
Delivered by experts in their fields, each session will be practical and relevant, striving to provide you
with strategies that you can apply in the classroom the very next day. Afternoon tea will be provided
and there will be time to network and collaborate with other English and Literature teachers. A light
afternoon tea and refreshments will be provided and there is ample parking available via Entry 6 off
Newman College (off Empire Avenue).
Speak to your Head of Department about registering your attendance or consider joining the ETAWA
