KCTE invites you to submit proposals for presentations for its spring conference.  

The educational climate in KY is at a fever pitch with changes in legislation, assessment, evaluation, and political leaders.  More than ever before, teachers must seek out quality, relevant learning opportunities and collaborate to provide the best possible instruction for KY students.  In addition, teachers must find their voices, connect to one another and policy makers, and speak up for what's right for education in our state and beyond.

 Please join us for the annual conference for both professional learning and an amplification of the gifts you already have.  Everyone educator needs that in February!

Be inspired by one of our suggestions or share your own groundbreaking idea.  Model how Kentucky teachers are leading the way in education!

Presenters (including multiple presenters) are required to register and pay for the conference.
