GLSEN Massachusetts Educator Retreat
January 23-25, 2015 ~ Provincetown, Massachusetts
For more than 15 years, the GLSEN Massachusetts Educator Retreat in Provincetown has been a core event for GLSEN Massachusetts. Teachers, guidance counselors, nurses, administrators and other K-12 education professionals come to Provincetown to share ideas and explore best practices. Providing a safe and welcoming environment is the cornerstone of the Educator Retreat. Through workshops and networking events, attendees experience a wide array of topics. LGBTQ educators and allies come to the Educator Retreat for different reasons. However, everyone shares common goals of supporting our students by enriching their lives with an educational setting that embraces all students.
Provincetown in January is quite a magical place. The beaches and streets are quiet, yet the energy brought by more than 50 educators makes the city vibrant. Educators arrive Friday evening to a welcome reception where new attendees and veteran participants meet in a relaxed setting. Workshop sessions begin early Saturday morning and end late in the afternoon. Through these workshops, educators collaborate to problem solve and create ideas they can bring back to their schools. Whether it’s energizing a GSA, discovering curriculum designs, or being inspired by personal stories, every educator leaves with a renewed sense of purpose. A Saturday evening reception and group dinner leads the way to new friendships and partnerships. The weekend ends Sunday morning with session designed to address real world challenges and solutions. Of course, the final part of the weekend is a scrumptious Sunday brunch just before people head off the Cape.
