Greetings! As the school year winds down, do you need a little inspiration to energize you in your teaching? Would like you like to learn more about using technology in your classroom? Would like you like to learn what other Tri-state area teachers are doing in their classrooms?
Clarke University Education Department is presenting a one-day teaching conference on Saturday, April 20th. In addition to many presentations by area teachers, we have engaged keynote speaker Rafe Esquith, hailed as “the most inspiring school teacher in America.” He's been called "a modern day Thoreau" by Newsday, "a genius and a saint" by The New York Times, and "the most interesting and influential classroom teacher in the country" by The Washington Post. Esquith is the only teacher to be awarded the president's National Medal of the Arts. He has received the National Teacher of the Year Award, and won accolades from Oprah, the Queen and the Dalai Lama. This is an inspirational session you will not want to miss.
The conference includes breakfast and lunch. The cost is only $70 for teachers and administrators if registered before March 29th and $80 after that date. The conference cost includes breakfast, lunch, and an entire day of inspiration!
