Have You Heard of the Teachers Leading Teachers Conference?


Being a teacher who presents, which is a very new adventure for me, has been quite interesting to say the least.  I didn’t know just how few of us there are that actually are able to go out and talk about the things that we do with our students and still stay in the classroom.  In fact, I have been to a few places where there were less than a handful of teachers presenting and yet the entire conference was geared toward teachers.  Hmmm… But I get it.  It is hard to leave my classroom.  It is hard to leave my family.  Presenting and sharing the words of my students is an incredible opportunity that I am honored to get, but it is like having two full-time jobs at times.  Yet, I can’t help but wish that more teacher’s voices were heard at all of the conferences that surround us.

Well, that is exactly what the founders of the Teachers Leading Teachers Conference, John T. Spencer and A.J. Juliani thought so too.  But instead of wondering about it, they decided to do something about it.  So what are the details of this awesome totally online conference?

The Teachers Leading Teachers Conference (from July 16th-20th) is bringing the best teacher leaders from around the world together to present and share their failures, wins, and practical strategies for teaching today’s student.

Here Is The Best Part

The entire conference in online (no travel or paying for accommodations)! Each session is available live, and as a digital copy. This format allows you to bring back the learning to your colleagues and school leaders at anytime.

It’s often difficult to explain the experience of an Edcamp or conference when someone wasn’t there, but the TLT Conference gives you access to that learning at any time. Sign-up now and take part in this first of it’s kind, online conference for teachers.
