Your Fine Arts Council at the 2023 Beginning Teachers' Conference: Recap

There is something special about watching a master teacher in action. And while we so rarely get an opportunity to watch other educators teach, there is potential to learn so much from them when we are afforded these chances. I recently had the pleasure of going to the Beginning Teachers’ Conference in Edmonton to present with other members of the Fine Arts Council.

What a treat it was to see Matt White, our Council’s Secretary, break down the ins and outs of running a successful drama program. His deep knowledge of how to put on an effective stage production and empower your community to come together to support the performing arts was a sight to behold.

Similarly, I had the pleasure of sitting in on one of Izabella Orzelski’s two workshops. As our Generalist Rep, her versatility and expertise within a broad range of artistic styles, media, and themes was truly inspiring. If you have a chance to attend one of her upcoming sessions in and around the Edmonton area, you will see firsthand how you can transform your classroom into a more creative and engaging learning space.


In mid-October, both presenters will be coming to the Beginning Teachers Conference in Calgary.


Finally, our Music Rep, Amanda Clark, presented one session on integrating technology in the music classroom and another on how to create effective assessments in this discipline area as well. Amanda’s extensive music background coupled with her natural gifts for teaching made her sessions practical and unforgettable.


We hope to see you soon at one of our upcoming events!
