The 24e annual congress of theQuebec Association of Elementary Teachers. The rally took place on December 7, 8 and 9 at the Quebec City Convention Center.

About a thousand teachers participated in a training day and more than 120 workshops. All the subjects dear to the teachers were covered by the speakers. A permanent workshop presented theiClass and allowed teachers to familiarize themselves with the use of technological tools in the classroom.

More than 150 organizations, businesses and publishers presented their novelties to teachers, happy to shop for their class.

Caring for teachers

During the opening conference, actor, author and former teacher Martin Larocque took care of the teachers by giving them a break: 90 minutes of humor and frank talk on the relationship to the body, the complexes, the life of couple, sexuality, fatherhood and money, subjects that are rarely discussed in this type of congress!

Still, the speaker posed a difficult question to teachers: "Are you where you want to be?" He took the opportunity to pay tribute to them. For him, teachers are the heroes of society. They are passionate and love “their” young people. But who takes care of the teachers?

During his conference, between anecdotes and deeper reflections, Martin Larocque also asked the teachers present to take care of themselves, their couple and their family, in that order. He ended his lecture by stressing that for him: “a good teacher teaches, a very good teacher demonstrates and an excellent teacher inspires. »What to think about the congress participants until next year!

In addition, the president of the AQEP, Stéphane Lenoir identified the great challenge that awaits the association next year: to increase the number of memberships. About a thousand teachers are members of AQEP, out of the 40,000 who work in Quebec primary schools. The AQEP also wants to develop its website and blog.

For the third year, two Jacinthe prizes were awarded to highlight the quality of their teaching in children's literature, Mélanie Boutin, teacher and at 3e cycle and Marco Lévesque, teacher at 2e cycle received financial support to set up the reading corner of their dreams and buy new books for their class.

Martin Lépine, volunteer editor-in-chief of the association's journal, also underlined the 25e birthday of Living the primary. Published four times a year, the magazine is produced entirely by volunteers.
