AETA is Proud to Announce
About the Event
The Arizona English Teachers Association, your state affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of
English, is excited to have Kelly Gallagher, a veteran teacher and researcher and leading voice in literacy
education, as our keynote speaker for the 2021 AETA Conference. Kelly’s research into the teaching of
reading and how to make reading energizing and exciting for our students, along with the events of 2020
and 2021, inspired this year’s conference theme: Forging a New Path. His work centers students’ love
for literacy and how to grow that, encouraging all of us to engage in practices that energize our students
and build their love for literacy. We hope you’ll join us in learning with him at this year’s conference!
To be able to lower the cost of the conference, lunch will NOT BE INCLUDED this year. We will have local AZ food trucks on site. However, the first 50 registrants will get the $10 lunch voucher.
