East Valley CEC offers two book studies each year, one in the fall and one in the spring. We select texts that offer opportunities for developing pedagogy, inspiration, and strategies ready to be brought directly from the study into the classroom. Our book studies come with the bonus of recertification and professional development hours, as well.
Workshops & Speakers
East Valley CEC gives Arizona professionals the opportunity to share their knowledge and experiences with others in the field. We offer workshop and speaker opportunities both in-person, and connected via Zoom, which allows East Valley CEC to connect across the state.
Make & Take
Our Make & Take events are specialized workshops where the presenters lead participants through the process of making their own instructional tool that can be taken straight from the presentation into the classroom. Spend time with your professional peers being creative and designing something new for your students!
Annual Awards Ceremony
We have many people worth celebrating, and make a point to do so each year! Our Annual Awards Ceremony celebrates the students, families, and professionals that show outstanding efforts, growth, and dedication throughout the year! Keep your eyes open for nominations in early Spring, then announcements at our Annual Awards Ceremony!
