The institute this year will focus on being lifelong growers and continually seeking to increase our skills as educators. Sessions will align with daily themes designed to support the lifelong development of educators.


  • Being Lifelong Growers (Monday): Education is always evolving. These sessions will support educators to continually increase their skills and share their knowledge with other educators.
  • Skill Being (Tuesday): Revist the foundations of education through sessions designed for pre-service, novice, and veteran educators.
  • Content All Around (Wednesday - Friday): Sessions will focus on connecting content with the world around us and helping students use what they know.


The Academy for Teacher Excellence (ATE) focuses on the preparation of Cultural Efficacious individuals who hold a strong ethnic identity, demonstrate self-determination, employ critical reflections, exhibit positive efficacy, reveal sociocultural competence, and engage in transformative practices, in addition to having strong content, pedagogical, and technological-pedagogical knowledge.
