I Corinthians 9:19-23, "Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing, serves as the theme. The conference will focus on Professional Learning Communities.
The first two sectionals on Monday will be grouped by Professional Learning Communities. Each educator will be asked to prepare a one-page teaching concept or idea to share with other teachers at the sectional. Educators will be given the number of copies to bring after registration is completed. On Tuesday educators may choose from a variety of technology sectionals.
