Historically each year over a thousand educators both locally and nationally gather to network, explore empowering learning environments and develop a professional learning community. In this age of Covid-19 we are adapting our approach. This year the conference will be a series of virtual convenings over 3 months. We are excited to celebrate 20 years of building grassroots, peer-led professional development opportunities!
