6 Conferences In 5 Days at #SDEevents for Educators This Summer in Vegas!

SDE National Education Conference – Vegas 2014

I’m excited to travel to Las Vegas this weekend to spend the week with some of the most energizing and inspiring teachers across the country.  SDE hosts a series of six conferences between July 7 – 11.  Teachers, technology enthusiast, and administrators will gather to attend custom sessions that meet their specific interests.  
Over the past year, I’ve enjoyed being a consultant with SDE and traveling the country to connect with classroom teachers.  What I love about their workshops is the style of each session.  They’re not your lecture based format.  Teachers can expect to interact with the session facilitators, gain practical ideas to bring back to their classrooms, and interact with fellow participants during the session.  
Let’s Connect in Vegas!

I’m leading 12 sessions over three days for the following conferences: Power Up, Differentiated Instruction, and I Teach 1st.  I’d love to meet up with you and share the work my kids are doing.
