Last week, Imagine Learning and its award-winning booth participated in the NSBA Conference, which was held April 9-11 in San Francisco, California. Emily Bybee has provided us with firsthand accounts of conferences before, and today she’s sharing a few thoughts here about one of the largest education conferences in the country.
I enjoy attending conferences because they always provide so many different opportunities. At Imagine Learning, we host an evening meal and an early morning site visit at each conference we attend. The hosted dinner is an opportunity for individuals to get well-fed and well-educated about how Imagine Learning is closing the achievement gap for at-risk students. It also provides opportunities to network with others, share ideas, and simply enjoy a relaxing evening.
The site visit is the perfect place to see students using and learning from Imagine Learning English. What better way to learn about the program than to see it in action?
Thanks to Morton’s The Steakhouse and Downer Elementary School for helping us host a delicious dinner and an eventful site visit. Make sure to contact us if you’re planning to attend an upcoming national conference — If we’re at the conference, we’d love to have you join us!
