The Incredibles: English teachers and their amazing superpowers!


Just like Clark Kent, in their day-to-day lives English teachers usually prefer to hide their superpowers in order to keep their true identities secret. But, no, in this session it’s time to shout out about our MANY special abilities, both great and small. The ultimate aim of this talk will be to remind you of just some of the unique strengths that all English teachers possess, but that we (and others) sometimes forget, or take for granted.
