California Teachers Summit

Friday, July 29, is the big day for the Irvine, Modesto, Visalia and Walnut Creek campuses. Each campus is hosting the California Teachers Summit, which will bring as many as 120 educators to each campus. The other summit sites include California State University campuses and private universities throughout the state, for a total of 40 sites.

The summit includes live streaming of two keynote speakers: actor and lifelong learner Ernie Hudson (“Ghostbusters”) and reading and writing teacher Kelly Gallagher

Each campus will also have EdTalk speakers. In Irvine, STEM expert Lauren Steinmann from the Tustin Unified School District and Orange County Teacher of the Year Raquel Solorzano-Dueñas will speak. Brandman adjuncts Dave Menshew and Ron Boren are the featured speakers in Modesto. In Visalia, the Tulare Teacher of the Year and Angie Ford speak. The Walnut Creek campus hosts Marica Trott and Gabriela Rowland.

The summit for PreK-12 teachers, teacher candidates, school administrators and other educators gives participants a chance to share ideas and discuss timely topics such as the California Standards for language and math and Next Generation Science Standards. Local educators lead the talks and discussions at each location. The Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU), the California State University (CSU), and New Teacher Center (NTC) are event partners.

The event is free. Brandman sites are near capacity but there are waiting lists. Some same-day registrations will be allowed if space permits. Additional information:
