One of the most important events that PAT hosts is Teacher for a Day. We invite policy makers, community leaders, and other partners to see our classrooms first hand. This year it will take place on Thursday, December 12th.
If you are interested in hosting a guest teacher in your classroom, please sign up here or contact Madeleine Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do You Have a Student Loan?
PAT members are invited to attend a Student Loan Debt & Basic Financial Planning Workshop on Monday, December 2, 2019, 4:30 – 6:30 p.m., at the PAT office.
Learn about the various types of federal student loan forgiveness programs and how to use the new NEA Student Loan Forgiveness Navigator Tool (SAVI) to determine your eligibility for a federal forgiveness program and the potential reduction in your loan debt. Information on basic financial essentials and financial planning will also be provided.
For more information, please see our flyer.
Don’t forget it is still Latinx and/or Hispanic Heritage Month. This heritage month began on September 15 and runs until October 15th. During this month, we celebrate the cultures and contributions of the Hispanic and Latinx communities. First recognized in 1968, Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15th, the anniversary of the independence of five Latin American countries: Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, El Salvador and Nicaragua. During this period, Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence!
There’s still time to lean into culturally responsive teaching by engaging students with lessons that center Latinx and/or Hispanic culture and traditions. This is a learning opportunity for those who do not share this ancestry. Be brave. Lean in. “Replace judgement with curiosity” and dare to go where you may not have gone before in your practice!
Here are curriculum resources for your planning.
Have fun and let us know how it goes!!
