Marywood University hosts teachers conference

A teachers conference at Marywood University highlighted the importance of the profession with keynote speakers, speed mentoring, and presentations Saturday.

SCRANTON, Pa. — The Teach Committee for the PA Chapter of National Network State Teachers of the Year hosted the conference at the McGowan building on the Scranton campus.

The conference was for pre-service teachers, graduate students, professors, and teachers at Marywood University.

Organizers wanted to engage and inspire the next group of teachers as the industry struggles with shortages and other challenges.

"It is such a rewarding profession, it is awesome, and it's forever changing. And we really like to have these creative and engaging teachers, and we want to show them how to do that. We want them to get excited, like, hey, I can be a teacher, and I can make a difference with a child," said Colleen Reiner, NSTOY-PA Chairperson.

This was the first time this conference was held in our area.
