Registration is Now Open for the 2018 Missouri Early Learning Conference!

In case you missed our e-blast announcement, registration is now open for the Nov. 9-10, 2018 Missouri Early Learning Conference.  This conference has become one of the premier conferences for preschool through 3rd grade teachers in the Midwest.  Each year, hundreds of primary grades teachers attend to hear an eclectic selection of presenters on a wide variety of topics: reading, writing, math, science, classroom management, ed tech, and much more.

This year’s conference features keynote presentations by brain-compatible teaching expert Marcia Tate and literacy guru Dr. Mary Howard, and you’ll have the opportunity to attend sessions by math experts Christopher Danielson (author of Which One Doesn’t Belong? and How Many?) and Stephanie Bainbridge (of Boxcars and One-Eyed Jacks), singer-educational songwriter Debbie Clement, award-winning storyteller Sherry Norfolk, literacy expert Jennifer Williams, and ed tech guru Don Goble

And that’s not all!  This year, we’ve added a new feature to make your conference experience even more enjoyable and entertaining.  Taking advantage of our first year of holding the conference in St. Louis, we’re offering you the chance to recharge your batteries after a long day of learning on Friday, by taking you out for our first annual Friday Night Out event.  This year, we’ll be taking a small group (tickets are limited, so order yours today!) to see the musical Aladdin at the fabulous Fox Theater.

And that’s not even to mention the 35 breakout sessions on a wide variety of topics of interest to pre-K to 3rd grade teachers. All in all, we truly believe you won’t find a better use for your PD dollar than spending a couple of days with us at the 2018 Missouri Early Learning Conference.  We look forward to seeing you there!
