Saturday, October 26th
8:30 AM - 1 PM
Jessie Ball DuPont Center, 40 E. Adams Street
Breakfast and lunch will be served



We are very excited for the 2020 Teachers of the Year to join us for an exciting day of fun, learning, and community building on October 26th at 8:30am at the Jessie Ball DuPont Center!

Our day will be centered around The Opportunity Myth - a study that shows that our schools are not providing the level of rigorous, engaging instruction that students need to be successful after graduating. Teachers of the Year will be able to select a session that will help them build their skills to be a leader for growth and improvement in their school and in Duval County.

We will close the day with a Community Learning Lunch hosted by The Center for Urban Education at UNF that will explore the history of education in Duval County and the legacy of Consolidation. Lunch will end by 1pm.
