Conference Overview


Accomplished K-12 educators, from all content areas, will engage you in cutting-edge practices that address the CCSS and NGSS. Every session will be enacted as an “Inquiry Into My Practice” (IIMP). In the breakout sessions, lead teachers with a Thinking-Partner will model how purposeful collaboration and critical reflection push us to innovate how we plan and instruct.

The Inquiry Into My Practice (IIMP) approach is particularly applicable to the forthcoming teacher performance evaluation models being implemented within districts.
