The last two years in education have brought forth one of the biggest challenges in our nation’s history. The Back to School Summit is the conference that will not only prepare educators with practical tools and strategies for the 2022-23 school year, but also provide a renewed sense of energy and optimism for this great profession. From the opening keynote with Jimmy Casas, to all 40 breakout sessions from which to select, our theme is, “WE GOT THIS!” We have experienced challenges before, and will experience challenges again in the future, but we choose to focus on preparing for the best year yet for our students, our staff and our communities.

 

Join us at the Learner FIRST Back to School Summit and leave inspired as a proud member of this great profession.
