  • Julie Peters, Associate Director of the Teaching of History Program, UIC; founding member of the Coalition for edTPA Rule Change

  • Trisha Wickland, MA, Concordia University; 1st, 2nd grade teacher at St. Paul Lutheran School in the Austin neighborhood
  • Cassandra Creswell, organizer with More Than A Score, board member of Raise Your Hand Illinois

For those teaching on Thursday evenings: consider bringing your class and please R.S.V.P. if you plan to do so.  Attendees will also have a chance to participate in facilitated discussions after the panel.
