EdCampJCPS2.0 – JCPS administrators, teachers and instructional assistants.
NO LEADERS, ONLY LEARNERS – all equal.

The EdCampJCPS professional learning experience will be designed by and led by JCPS educators. Anyone attending can lead a session. The “big board” of session listings will be ever evolving. Some sessions may even spring from learning earlier in the day – it’s up to the change agents in attendance.

What is an EdCamp, you ask?
EdCamps are:
– Free – Edcamps are offered at no cost to attendees which enables educators from any and all schools to participate.
– Inspirational – Educators from more than 23 countries are bringing their Edcamp learning back to their students, and changing the classroom dynamic.
– Participant-driven – Every attendee voice is not only heard, but also empowered to drive the conversation and program.
– Collaborative -Edcamps thrive on the exchange of ideas and knowledge, and creating an international network of learners that benefit from each other. Created by participants that day and sessions facilitated by anyone.
– Flexible – Reliant on the “law of two feet” that empowers everyone to find session that meet their needs
This event will be for JCPS PD Credit

Don’t Stop Achievin’

Stan Torzewski, NBCT


Another school week gone
Ready for some teacher fun
Dr. Donna says
6 hours of PD

Issues on our plate
Biggest district in the state
Dr. Donna says
6 hours of PD

Joined arms and spoke some truth
Fed our minds and networks too
Now let’s change the world
E-CET-2-Lou-Lou-Lou

Network, recharge
Teaching can at times be hard
Our profession can sometimes feel like a fight

Network, recharge
Breaking out of isolation
Together we’ll bring the LIGHT

Don’t think we’ll ever get our fill
Numbers, standards, reading skills
Starting early & staying late
Each school day

Some teach science
Some teach math
Some teach on the coaching path
Changing lives everyday
We teach on and on and on and on
Network, recharge
Teaching can at times be hard
Our profession sometimes feel like a fight

Network, recharge
Breaking out of isolation
Together we’ll bring the LIGHT

Don’t stop believin’
Hold on to the feeling
