We’re showing our appreciation for all that amazing educators like you do every day, and it’s even better than a cute cupcake!
During Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6–10, 2019), TCEA will offer all current and retired educators, administrators, and librarians free, one-year TCEA memberships, regularly priced at $49. It’s one way we show our gratitude for your dedication and hard work and celebrate the advancement of digital learning.
TCEA members strengthen their professional learning network, gain valuable professional development, and discuss ideas, trends, tips, and techniques with their peers and experts. And this week, you can secure those benefits for an entire year, all for free. If you’re already a TCEA member, you can renew your membership for another year, again at no cost.
In addition, our six Special Interest Groups are also offering complimentary membership during Teacher Appreciation Week. Join one, some, or all of them without paying a dime and dive into specialized learning and powerful online conversations. The SIGs include:
- CAMP-SIG (for campus technology specialists, instructional coaches, and anyone who works with adult learners)
- LIB-SIG (for library media specialists)
- ROBO-SIG (for those interested in the teaching of robotics)
- TA/CS-SIG (for those working in Technology Applications and Computer Science)
- TEC-SIG (for CTOs, technology directors, and instructional technology leaders)
- VL-SIG (for those interested in virtual learning)
