Curriculum conference puts summer on hold for teachers

Today wraps up the Mansfield ISD annual Summer Conference for teachers. These dedicated teachers have put their summer plans on hold for a few extra days to prepare for next year.

Monica Gonzalez, Elementary Language Arts Coordinator, guest posts about the conference:
This three-day event draws over 500 teachers each day to attend multiple sessions in every content area known to man...well that may be an exaggeration but we do have language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, health, art, GT, CPI, ESL, and even PE, 125 sessions total.

We also have 17 vendors in attendance, providing teachers with a look at available technology and new instructional materials. The conference provides a way for teachers to expand their teaching repertoire and to learn about new instructional materials for the 2010-2011 school year. Teachers are saying: "Great workshop; they did a great job!" "Will definitely use in my classroom." "I got some great ideas and am excited about using them next year." "Loved It!! Best and most effective workshop I have attended in my three years in MISD."

Thanks to the staff at Legacy HS for hosting the summer conference. Thanks to all the presenters! Thanks to MISD Curriculum and Instruction Department for all of the hard work and effort that goes into planning, organizing, and conducting the conference each year!
