Vermont-NEA Conferences & Events

Vermont-NEA holds many events throughout the year. Some events are annual events, while others are focused on specific topics of interest to the field of education. Vermont-NEA has a Professional Learning Committee, which includes both ESPs and Teachers, that help guide these offerings. If you have ideas for other events, please reach out to Dr. Juliette Longchamp, Director of Professional Programs at [email protected].


A micro-credential is a short, competency-based recognition. VT-NEA & NEA offer over 175 micro-credentials that have been created by educators for educators.

Teacher Licensure

Before becoming a teacher-of-record, teacher candidates must demonstrate the skills and knowledge needed for effective classroom practice. Licensure provides the professional and public assurance that educators have met state teaching standards and have demonstrated their readiness to teach and improve student learning.

What we should do is let our students know we care and are here to guide them, and to encourage each student to be the best they can be.
Quote by: Whitney Barber, Special Education Paraprofessional
VT teachers stand smiling with signs; one says "Proud to Teach."
