CSTP can help you indulge yourself as a writer! The 2010 Writers' Retreat is June 28 - July 1 in Olympia. Spend four days in a quiet setting with supportive colleagues and write your opus, op-editorial, or journal article about some aspect of teaching. Work with writing coaches who can keep you motivated. Be inspired by what your colleagues have to say: about their work-and yours. Learn how to prepare your manuscript for publication.
You can see the kind of work that teachers produce by downloading one of the two editions of CSTP's Teachers' Voices. Also check out Jessie Towbin's article that was written at last year's Writers' Retreat and just published in ASCD's Education Leadership, February 2010. Another former participant wrote: "I wanted to be sure that what I was doing in my classroom was the best I could offer my students. I set out to change my own world and this is the story of my journey."
March 18 is the application deadline. For more information on how to apply go to our website.
