CALGARY TELUS CONVENTION CENTRE(CTCC) and HYATT - address and driving directions

President Schilling’s 2023 Convention Greeting Link

FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK IN THE SESSION DESCRIPTION. The pre-registration web page is https://www.pdtca.org/pre-registration.html Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered.  Pre-registration is now closed. The pre-registration page has an email link if you need to request to be removed from a session so someone on the waiting list can have your spot - top right of the page. For changes or signup come to the convention information desk at/after 1:00 pm on Thursday, Feb 23rd. Please kindly check Button 3. on the pre-registration page to see if a session has room for you as most of them are full.

You do not need to create a profile and log in to see sessions in Sched. However, if you want to add yourself to a session or evaluate a session you must be logged in.

NOTE TO SPEAKERS: We had planned to have a Zoom help desk, but decided against it.

PRINTABLE CONVENTION AT A GLANCE LINK - Off-Site Addresses are included.

“On the two school days of your assigned teachers’ convention, you have a legal and professional responsibility to attend convention. If you are not able to make it safely to your assigned convention, however, your collective agreement may include impassable roads or inclement weather clauses that you can access. If your collective agreement does not include language specific to road conditions or weather, you may make use of the personal leave clauses of your agreement in most cases. Please be aware that using any of these types of leave may require you to pay substitute costs, forego a portion of your salary and benefits, or report to your school or another work location in your district. Refer to your collective agreement for more information. Should you require any additional information or if you need assistance interpreting your collective agreement, please contact Teacher Employment Services at 1-800-232-7208 or 780-447-9400.”

Ever Active Schools
 joined Ever Active Schools in 2022 as a Health & Wellness Consultant. My goal is to  inspire the next generation of leaders to overcome adversity and achieve a healthy future in our community.  I believe that living a healthy lifestyle is more than exercising regularly and eating well - it’s also about building strong relationships, practicing emotional intelligence, connecting with your community and demonstrating kindness & gratitude.
My experience comes from a dedicated career in sport and recreation. Recently, I worked for YMCA Calgary where I provided leadership for the day camps & climbing teams across the city.  I also provided meaningful experience-based learning opportunities for students and teachers through a Campus Calgary/Open Minds program called Healthy Living School.
As a Health & Wellness Consultant, I love connecting with teachers across the province through professional learning opportunities and working directly with schools and community groups through various projects.
In my spare time, you can find me outdoors! I love exploring the community, going for walks and gardening. You can also find me at a local off-leash park with my dog Sterling!
