NC Elementary School Conference


Earlier this year I was invited by Laura Candler (yes, that Laura Candler!) to present at the Annual North Carolina Elementary Educator’s Conference, and, of course, I accepted!  This year’s conference is being in Greensboro on October 20-22.  I’m super-excited about it, and if you’ll be in the area, I hope you will join us!

I will be presenting two sessions:

Cracking the Code: QR Codes in the Classroom  – Discover how Quick Response (QR) Codes can engage and excite students and parents, promote independent learning, and serve as a communication tool. 

The Missing Puzzle Piece: Connecting Parents To The Common Core (I’ll be presenting with the FABULOUS Rachel Lamb from The Tattooed Teacher!)- Learn effective strategies to increase parent involvement and help parents develop a better understanding of Common Core Standards and what is expected of their students. 

I’ll be presenting among some AMAZING company:
