This year's conference was a huge success! The food, workshops, and Keynote were above average and Sisters High School was perfect! The connections that many teachers made was inspiring. Start making plans to attend next year. Site is TBA, we are in negotiations with two different sites and hope to have a Save the Date out very soon.
