In the general sessions, be inspired and learn more about yourself and your students by having a better understanding of the bridge between classroom management and trauma, how to utilize a racial and social justice lens in the classroom, and recognizing your next steps on your way to your profession. Additionally, breakout sessions will focus on Reading, Math, Praxis, and Assessments. Outside of networking with other future educators from around the state, challenge yourself by running for a state board position. Click HERE to learn more about the open positions.
Come and be inspired to be the educator that not just knows what to do, but cares enough to learn.
