Connecting ELA Teachers

Manitoba Association of Teachers of English is all things English Language Arts (ELA), striving to help English teachers connect with one another, hone their craft, access ELA resources, and register for the MATE MTS PD Day each October. Become a member and join our mission.


Our Keynote is Penny Kittle, co-author of 180 Days: Two Teachers with the Quest to Engage and Empower and author of Write Beside Them. She is speaking on our conference theme, ‘Reading, Writing, Re-Engaging’. We also feature Jessica Dumas, the first Indigenous Female Chairperson of the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce (2019-2020) with a talk on becoming the leader you can be. REGISTRATION OPENs ON AUGUST 25. LATE FEE for registrations after October 20.
