Event description

Description

The Maine Association for Middle Level Education (MAMLE) annual conference is an opportunity to discover new techniques and colleagues across the state of Maine who are dedicated to the education of middle school students. We offer two days packed full of breakout sessions and inspiring keynotes. You will come away with ideas that you can implement on Monday morning and feel reinvigorated and inspired for the rest of the school year! Join us to have some fun at Point Lookout this year.

Theme

Our theme this year is “Filling Our Cups.” We recognize that in 2019, between changing policies, administration, trends, and students, sometimes we just need to remember to take care of ourselves to be the best teachers we can be. Our jobs as middle level educators are more complex than ever– sometimes we need to “refill our cups.” We also recognize that teaching is ultimately about relationships– if our students are not ready to learn emotionally, it is hard to motivate them to do so. One of the “16 Keys to Educating Young Adolescents” from This We Believe is that educators value young adolescents and are prepared to teach them. We need to refill our cups in order to help theirs overflow with positivity and engagement.

In addition to our traditional sessions that you have grown to expect from us– pedagogical and practical sessions rooted in middle level best practices that you can take back “to use Monday morning–” we will also have sessions focusing on mindfulness, strategies to avoid teacher burnout, and advice and Q&A sessions for administrators, new teachers, and experienced teachers. We also have sessions which will focus on social-emotional learning, multiculturalism, and “filling the cup” for our students.

Registration includes lunch on both days as well as coffee and refreshments during breaks. Registation opens on Wednesday evening from 5:00-8:00 pm.

2019 Keynotes:

Jamie Toohey, an experienced middle school teacher, will lead us through an Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) workshop) on Thursday, followed by MTOY 2018 Kaitlin Young, a K-8 music teacher at SeDaMoCha Middle school, on Friday!
