Hi everyone,

I've recently moved to NYC, and am wondering if anyone knows of any organizations that teacher candidates can join for support, networking, socializing, etc.

Basically I am in need of people to bounce ideas off of and ask questions of.

Hi there! Boy are you in luck. Got plans for this Sunday? You need to be at Edcamp NYC, a FREE 'unconference' for educators (and aspiring educators):


Edcamps are informal, free, fun and fabulous opportunities to learn, share, network and make friends. People will be coming from all over the tri-state area. You will meet amazing people, learn state-of-the-art techniques, make new friends, and it wont cost you a dime!

You could even propose a session called "New Teacher Networking" or something similar and end up having a great conversation with new and veteran teachers about that very topic.

Trust me, if you find a way to get there, you won't be sorry!

Hope this helps!
