Teachers, this one’s for you. Throughout February, connect with fellow educators through virtual professional development workshops led by Austin arts organizations.
Cheers to Teachers is a celebration of our incredible educators—a chance to gather, connect, and learn from one another through activities and conversation. Open to all K-12 educators, this PD series will feature free, weekly workshops hosted each Wednesday in February from 6–8pm. Additional opportunities and resources will be offered to attendees throughout the month. These workshops will enable teachers to connect with colleagues in Austin and beyond, participate in arts activities, and gain helpful tools to bring back to their classrooms (virtual or otherwise)—while having plenty of fun along the way!
