Make your reservations for our annual fall conference. We are uniting with the Association of Illinois School Library Educators for a joint conference in Springfield, and it's shaping up to be an amazing weekend! Mention AISLE for the group rate! #IATE19 #AISLEd19
There's a good chance I won't make it to #ncte19. Rural districts do not have finances to cover costs & those of us in those districts often do not make enough. If you can go - you absolutely should. The experience, the community, & the learning are like nothing else. https://t.co/XOF642Ee3l
