Join an Advisory Team and Help Guide Professional Development in MN ABE!

Do you like thinking about how we grow as professional educators in ABE? Interested in helping design workshops, study circles, job-embedded cohort-experiences, conferences, and other professional development (PD) events? Three unique leadership opportunities are coming up for Minnesota ABE practitioners. Your unique expertise and interests may be just what we need!

We are currently seeking applications for ABE teachers and administrators to serve as program representatives on three different advisory teams. Each of the three teams is tasked with designing relevant, meaningful, and effective professional development for practitioners within its area of focus:

Program representatives play a critical role in bringing local/regional PD needs to the committee and sharing PD information & resources with practitioners in their region! They must be currently employed with a Minnesota ABE program and have experience with ABE instruction or administration. Experience planning, delivering, or participating in local, regional or statewide professional development is a plus. Representatives receive a stipend in recognition of their work on the committee and gain valuable experience collaborating with a diverse group of ABE professionals on meaningful PD work that benefits ABE practitioners and programs.

Applications for each of the teams are due by Friday, May 24. Committee members will be selected to ensure representation from diverse regions, types of programs, roles, and areas of expertise. ATLAS will review applications and notify applicants of their selections by Friday, June 7, 2019. If you have any questions about these committees, please contact Patsy Egan, ATLAS Director, [email protected].

We’d also like to extend a huge thank-you to our outgoing LLATé and MNI A-Team members for their commitment and contributions to MN ABE professional development!

Thank you!

Patsy Egan, Director ATLAS
