Happy New Year!
We are ringing in the new year with a new look to our page. Our hope is that this new page will be easier to navigate so that we can more easily provide you with the resources you need to run your program.
The motto for my district this year is PIVOT. I don’t think we could have picked a more fitting theme because if we have learned anything at all this year from the COVID pandemic, it is that we can shift gears and change direction with a moment’s notice.
With all of the PIVOTing happening, we want you to know that we are hard at work planning our 2021 Summer conference to provide you with information specific to Health Science Teachers. Registration details along with information for prospective presenters and vendors will be published soon, watch for an email from THOA, Inc and check our conference tab for more information.
Also, don’t forget to join THOA, Inc. and purchase your professional educator’s liability insurance policy at www.ACTEonline.org; you can read more about it here Professional Educator Liability Insurance.
As we kick off this year, I pray you take care of yourself, stay well, and I look forward to seeing you in July.
