Great teachers are the most important in-school influence on student achievement. But, teaching can also feel professionally isolating at times, with daily interaction with fellow teachers limited by the school schedule.
GO Public Schools Oakland offers teachers a number of ways to not only connect with colleagues at their schools but with other educators throughout the city.
Here are some ways to meet and interact with your peers:
Teacher Dialogue Dinners
Break bread with teachers and members of GO staff from across the community and have the opportunity to step back and think about the future of education and what we need to do to get there.
To find out more details or attend our next dinner, please contact our Director of Policy, Marc Tafolla, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teacher Happy Hours
Quench your thirst while meeting and mingling with other Oakland teachers.

GO hosts various events tailored to engaging a broad range of Oakland teachers. These events have included a teachers-only panel in school turnaround and dinners with national education leaders.
