Annual Educators Conference

We are excited to share plans for the 2014 Annual Educators Conference. This year's theme, REACH, creates a powerful visual for each of us…as educators and learners, it "reaches" us on many levels.  It brings to mind specific, and personal, instances for each of us…where our "reach" was both pivotal and powerful.  It resonates with us individually and collectively as educators and creates an ideal framework for this very special event.
