It may be midwinter, but we’re not hibernating here at The Walking Classroom! In fact, we’re busy preparing for a number of upcoming education conferences and wellness events on the horizon for us over the next few months.
From School Conferences . . .
National Association of ESEA State Program Administrators Conference
February 4 – 7
First, The Walking Classroom exhibits at the National Association of ESEA State Program Administrators Conference. Held in Atlanta, Georgia, this event is the largest conference for federal education programs. It will have over 3,000 attendees!
Formerly the National Title I Association, The National Association of Elementary and Secondary Act (ESEA) State Programs has not only changed its name. In addition, it has shifted its focus, as it is working to address the needs of those supported by all the programs funded by the ESEA.
Besides several keynote presentations, the conference also features over 100 sessions. These cover one of three themes: Instruction, Leadership, or Policy. Be sure to catch our presentation!
