Educators Conference 2018

The Education Department at Covenant College is pleased to announce that Re-Centering the Plumbline is the topic for this year’s Educators Conference. The conference will feature plenary addresses and breakout sessions from Covenant's Education Department faculty emphasizing the best practices, frameworks, and biblical foundations that will sharpen your focus as an educator. As the Lord revealed to Amos in the Old Testament, the plumbline of God and His unchanging Word must be our cornerstone for effective schooling, so come on March 1 for stimulating conversation, learning, and a unique opportunity to refocus and recharge.

 

The Educators Conference is to be held on Thursday, March 1, 2018 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

 

The cost to register is $50 prior to the registration deadline of February 15 and rises to $75 thereafter. The fee is nonrefundable after the registration deadline. The fee includes lunch.

The annual Career Summit coincides with the Educators Conference. For those administrators coming to meet our teacher candidates, please consider attending the Educators Conference in the morning and early afternoon of Thursday, March 1, then plan to spend the balance of the afternoon plus the evening and the next day with our teacher candidates. Administrators will have opportunity to present their schools to our teacher candidates as well as to individually interview candidates.

Dr. Jim Drexler describes Covenant’s undergraduate education program, defined by its philosophy of training Christian teachers who demonstrate Christ’s preeminence in all things.

"I love being an elementary education major and having the close-knit community of elementary education majors. Covenant’s education department excels at providing opportunities for students to be in the classrooms throughout the entire degree program, even as early on as first semester of your freshman year in Intro to Teaching. I have really enjoyed spending time down at a school in Chattanooga this semester to give me hands-on experience to relate to what I am learning in my coursework."

"I love that I am able to work with kids and that I am in a program that allows me to go off the Mountain and begin to see what it looks like to apply what I’m learning in a classroom. The professors in elementary education are also super phenomenal. They are excited to teach us how to become better teachers and inspire us to be great teachers."
