New Jersey Education Association
The New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) was founded in 1853 with a desire to improve education and to elevate the teaching profession. NJEA has encouraged the AENJ to stand strong alongside all other subjects. They feel it is important for the AENJ to participate at the NJEA Teacher’s State Convention held in Atlantic City and to have a voice in their publication, “The Review” published monthly (September through June). We encourage our AENJ members to submit proposals to speak at the NJEA Teacher Conference.
AENJ at NJEA offers all members an opportunity to get artistically and creatively involved at the convention. Art is not just for art teachers anymore!
As an affiliate of NJEA, AENJ encourages its members to present at the state convention. If you are interested in presenting at the 2018 NJEA Convention, November 8 & 9 in Atlantic City, please click HERE. The deadline for submissions is February 15, 2018.
