Teacher Talks

When Teachers Talk

We Listen

Teacher Talks is an annual event that uplifts and celebrates the voices of educators in our community. Each year, CMS educators take the stage in front of a live audience to deliver powerful and inspiring talks based on their ideas and experiences in the classroom.

The Teacher Talks event is open to the public, providing a unique learning experience for the entire community. We invite you to explore previous talks below.
