The UCI Celebration of Teaching, presented by the UCI School of Education's Teacher Academy, is held annually during National Teacher Appreciation Week. The event honors teachers and educators for their commitment to educating, mentoring, and inspiring future generations of students, and provides an opportunity for attendees to develop practical skills from a leading expert.
This year's featured speaker is H. Richard Milner IV, Cornelius Vanderbilt Chair of Education and Professor of Education in the Department of Teaching and Learning at Peabody College of Vanderbilt University. Dr. Milner will present "Opportunity Centered Teaching," which focuses on the imperatives necessary to build and cultivate justice and equity through Opportunity Centered Practices in classrooms, schools, and districts.
On the heels of an incredibly difficult year, the Celebration of Teaching will provide a special venue to recognize the incredible efforts of our teachers, administrators, school staff and more. Register today and come celebrate with your fellow teachers!
