Conference Recap

"The NDCTE has held such an esteemed place in my teaching life for many years.  The organization allows for and encourages so much growth and dedication to our noble profession.  Yes, the tremendous paperwork can be grueling, but continued inspiration comes from fellow English teachers and appreciative students. Thank you for a stupendous conference. We all gathered many new ideas to use in the classroom."
