Building a Better Teacher:
Preparing Hoosier Teachers for THE Future

What does it mean to be a teacher in the 21st century? How can we elevate the teaching profession in a new way? Please join Teach Plus, the Indiana University School of Education and Chalkbeat for a panel discussion on the future of the teaching profession. The panel will discuss how teachers are prepared, how they make decisions about where to teach, and how policies impact their time in the classroom. This interactive discussion will be introduced by Elizabeth Green, founder of Chalkbeat and author of Building A Better Teacher, and moderated by Scott Elliott of Chalkbeat Indiana. Current teachers and those studying to become teachers are welcome to attend and participate in an interactive discussion on the teaching profession.
