Featured Events

June: 11th Annual (Virtual) Teaching & Learning Conference

Teacher identities play a significant role in how one operates in the classroom. Regardless of where one teaches (and at what level), educators can strengthen their craft by reflecting on that identity and seeking to understand its implications. This plenary session by Dr. Matt Ridenour will focus on bringing teacher selves into conscious spaces for deep and intentional examination. See the June tab for details.

July: BUILD 2022 Conference

BUILD2022 will feature the work of teams of leaders across the country building early childhood systems that advance toward racial equity, center families and providers, and keep improving and adapting to our ever-changing context. Hear from community and county leaders as well as visionaries at the state level in the public sector and in advocacy roles. Check out the July tab for more information.
