ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – More than 1,000 teachers were in Albuquerque Monday for the second annual Teacher Summit.


The Public Education Department holds the summit so educators can give input on how to improve New Mexico schools.

Teachers also attend workshops to help improve their craft.

“It’s important for us as teachers to be the best that we can,” said Janet Weeden, a teacher at the Explora Academy Charter School. “And because the PED has offered us so many opportunities to improve our practice, it’s important for us to be here not only for our own teaching practice, but especially for our students.”

Last year around 300 teachers attended the first summit. Attendance more than tripled for this year.
