Virtual Summer Conference 2021
Welcome to the Massachusetts Teachers Association's Summer Conference! In addition to our usual union education and professional development sessions, we’re pleased to provide many wonderful new offerings, including a speaker series, town halls, movie nights, and more!
Reimagining Public Education: Educating with Joy
Registration for all programs is now open.
The MTA Division of Training & Professional Learning invites you to join us for the 2021 Virtual Summer Conference.
July 9 through August 13, join MTA members for an exciting array of virtual workshops and an in-person statewide Listening Tour. Share your joys, challenges, and silver-linings about educating through the pandemic. Our students, families and communities have experienced much sadness and loss, but our commitment to educate with joy has helped us to prevail.
Take some time to reset and refresh before the start of the 2021-22 school year! Just like last year’s Summer Conference, all this year’s workshops and events are being offered free of charge to MTA members.
