600 educators to converge on Sac State for Teachers Summit

Teacher Summit preview The third Better Together: California Teachers Summit at Sacramento State, coming Friday, July 28, is shaping up to be the biggest and most innovative so far.

The summit, to be held concurrently with dozens of similar gatherings across California, is expected to draw more than 600 Sacramento-area educators, twice the attendance of previous years, for a day of networking and learning. This year’s summit also will feature the semifinals of the first ReinventEd competition, an event organized by Sac State’s College of Education to encourage innovation and the use of technology in the classroom.

“A strong teacher workforce is essential to our state’s growth and development,” says Alexander Sidorkin, dean of the College of Education. “During the summit, teachers come together not only to learn from each other, but also to make a statement about upholding the values of inclusion, diversity, and equity. I am excited that Sacramento State will once again host the region’s educators for this wonderful and important event.”

This year’s keynote speaker is Jill Biden, a lifelong educator and the wife of former Vice President Joe Biden who has taught at community colleges, a public high school, and a psychiatric hospital for adolescents over her 30-year teaching career. She will be live-streamed from Saint Mary’s College of California, the headquarters site.
