As the Chair of the Local Arrangements Committee of Texas ASCD’s Annual Conference, I have witnessed firsthand the hard work and dedication that has gone into designing professional learning that will leave you inspired and energized. We have carefully planned learning addressing the most pressing issues in education today. Attendees of this conference will experience dynamic presenters offering practical solutions, networking with other educators, and gain/strengthen learning. I invite you to join us at the 2023 Annual Conference, which promises to be an event like no other. This year’s theme is “Lighting the Path Forward,” and the conference promises to be a transformative experience, featuring exciting keynotes, workshops, and networking opportunities that will empower you to reach new heights in your educational journey. It’s a time to relax, connect, and celebrate! Your presence at this event would mean a great deal to me.
Texas ASCD continues to offer remarkable, multi-day academies all over the state on the following topics: Curriculum Design, Curriculum Leadership, Transformative Leadership, and Instructional Aides.
