The Special Area Groups of Educators affiliated with The Manitoba Teachers’ Society are organizations of educators in specific fields. They offer professional development, camaraderie and a forum to share ideas and insights. Special Area Group conferences and workshops present the best ideas from the brightest minds in teaching.

SAGEs do much more than sponsor the extensive professional development conferences. They reinforce personal professional development activities by helping develop on-going skills in a friendly, non-competitive environment. Visit a group’s page for more information, including fees and contact.

SAGEs provide professional development opportunities as part of their mandate.
