NYSCATE11 is just around the corner and I, along with the conference committee, anticipate another worthwhile conference. I’ve been to a number of conferences for various organizations (state, national and international) and this conference is always the most special. I’m not just saying that because I volunteer on the committee. There is something about it that makes you want it to last.
It has a lot to do with our membership. There is such diversity at NYSCATE’s Annual Conference that in one moment you can speak with someone from just about every walk of education. I love it when I can join in conversations with superintendents, technology directors, principals, teachers (from all levels and content areas) and students while they gather in the foyer to chat, discuss, debate and suggest solutions to current issues in education today. It’s also about being okay with walking around with BBQ stain on your shirt following a hearty lunch at the ‘Saur. Everyone understands.
From being inspired by the innovative educators at the grants and awards dinner to social events with members, NYSCATE is about people. We hope you will also be enlightened by Diana Laufenberg, Hall Davidson, Steve Dembo and Kevin Honeycutt who will speak during the keynote sessions.
Don’t miss out on the hands-on, minds-on Pre-Conference sessions that often go unnoticed because they happen before the official kickoff. Check out the list of Pre-Conference sessions here and register today!
