The First ECET2
In 2012, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation brought together nearly 200 educators and teacher leaders for the first national ECET2 convening in Scottsdale, Arizona. After that event, energized teachers began organizing regional convenings to inform and inspire teachers in their own communities, develop their leadership potential, and hone their craft.
School-level ECET2 Convenings: In 2017, teachers who had participated in regional events began bringing the ECET2 experience back to their districts and schools. Regional convening planners have provided direct funding to teachers to help them bring ECET2 home.
ECET2 Across the Country
Through 2019, ECET2 has empowered more than 35,000 teachers through 6 national convenings and more than 250 regional convenings in 41 states.
Since 2012, ECET2 has empowered thousands of teachers to elevate their voices and improve their practice, resulting in better classroom experiences for hundreds of thousands of students across the country.
But teachers continue to face innumerable challenges, so the need for ECET2 will remain as strong as ever.
ECET2 can continue to empower teachers nationwide at the regional and local levels by equipping them with the resources, tools, connections, and motivation they need to grow as educators and teacher leaders.
