BC Early Career Teachers' Association
Go to their Facebook page here.
Through workshops, online resources and support, the Start UP! Your Class Cooperative aims to help all those in BC with a new assignment. More than 1500 early career BC teachers have participated in the program's workshops since the program was begun by PITA in 2007. We aim to support all K-8 teachers.
To join this web community, click the INVITE link above and enter your school email. With over 900 members now, we expect that in the next two years we will be able to build a more active community. Here you can find resources from the workshops and share B.C. curriculum focused resources, make connections, enter discussions and access advice from other teachers.
This website supports the Start UP! Your Class Cooperative, a non-profit teachers' cooperative.
The Start UP! Your Class Cooperative is a BC based, non-profit, teachers’ cooperative. With a focus on curriculum and resources for teachers early in their career, our purpose is to ensure teachers with a new assignment are prepared and confident when they begin.
