Morales Group was a proud sponsor of the 2022 Teach Indy Educators Conference, a two-day event designed to develop teachers’ knowledge in support of student achievement, share best practices, and champion educators who impact the daily lives of students.
Teach Indy is a nonprofit partnership among Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS), the Office of Education Innovation, and The Mind Trust “designed to bring more outstanding teachers to Indianapolis.”
The conference, held on Saturday, April 30, 2022, followed a full agenda of professional development, networking, and giveaways, as well as hosted the annual Teach Indy Awards to honor local educators for outstanding contributions.
Dr. Bettina Love, author of “We Want to Do More Than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom,” presented the keynote. Notable participants on the opening Teacher Response Committee panel included Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett and Indiana’s Secretary of Education Dr. Katie Jenner.
The conference offered breakout sessions to dive into niche education needs, such as inclusion for students with special needs and disabilities, classroom philosophy, linguistic and cultural inclusion, and education policy.
As the conference came to a close, partners and attendees celebrated the Teach Indy Awards, championing local teachers for their above-and-beyond contributions to specific areas of education.
Fellow sponsors of the conference alongside Morales Group included partner group The Mind Trust, as well as Indy Eleven, IndyHub, Simon Youth Foundation, Butler University College of Education, and others.
