"During a time where many find it hard to generate a smile while walking the halls of education, 850+ attendees did just that for two full days in February. The smiles, laughter, and energy that filled the conference center at Kalahari is a testament to the commitment of middle level educators who work to overcome obstacles in order to keep what is most important at the center...their students!


Powerful messages from Ron and Jack gave the focus for each day. Both reminded us that caring, trusting relationships with our students is at the heart of effective teaching and learning. It is not something many people in education are talking about today, but educators in the middle know it is a key determinant of student performance and continue to take the time to build these foundations for learning. Then it was off to the breakout sessions facilitated by teachers in the trenches. The willingness of these teacher presenters to share their relevant, effective strategies is the engine of the entire conference. They take participants on a journey through their educator’s mind, sparking new, innovative practices to implement in their own classrooms. Attendees walked away from these sessions filled and inspired. Spending 2 days with 850+ like-minded educators is the best professional development gift any educator can receive."
