The “Leading Together” conference featured 120 sessions for teachers and administrators to choose from, with all of the sessions hosted by faculty members.
Teachers discussed new technology and working with students in poverty. School leaders say a conference like this is especially important for first year teachers.
“Having an experienced teacher just help you through, share things that really work in their classroom, share ideas with curriculum, share ideas with classroom management,” said Michelle Miller, Fayetteville High School vice principal and a coordinator for the event.
The conference, held at the high school, was followed by an education expo for teachers to network and connect with community members.
The first day of school for students and teachers is Monday, August 17.
