Grow professionally by getting involved in professional teaching organizations. Associations provide teachers with the chances to network with other teachers from around the world. Attending conferences is one of the best ways (not to mention fun) to learn the latest thinking in education, the newest teaching methods, and share your own classroom experiences with fellow educators. As you begin to grow and learn through your local, state, and national organizations, you might want to become actively involved by presenting at conferences or running for an elected office. Playing an active role in your teacher organization can provide many benefits and awards. Involved teachers walk through open doors of opportunity.
