The Association of Teacher Educators will hold its annual conference from February 12-16 in Chicago, IL.  All teacher preparation students--undergraduate and graduate--are invited to attend the "strand" that has been developed specifically for pre-service teachers.  This will be a great way to get ideas for teaching and a useful perspective on the teaching profession.

The agenda for the pre-service strand and the details about the conference are below.  Registration for the pre-service strand is only $30.  To register, go to https://www.registrationfactory.com/v3/?EventUUID=5DA6025F.
