Fall Conference – October 27-29, 2019

Our Fall conference will be held in Natchez, Mississippi from October 27-29, 2019.

Please review our fantastic conference program!

The Mississippi Association for Middle Level Education is hosting a two and a half day conference for middle level educators (grades 4-9). The theme for the conference is “Mission Possible: Agents of Change.”

We are excited to announce our keynote speaker is LaVonna Roth of Ignite Your S.H.I.N.E.! .

Thousands of educators are exiting the field of education every year, exhausted and burnt out. Frustrated by this crisis that hurts our students, LaVonna set out on a worldwide mission to serve educators, authoring 8 books on brain research and engaging instruction, creating the Ignite Your S.H.I.N.E.® framework, and providing professional development for educators internationally. Her life’s passion is to empower educators like YOU to find the greatness within your students and the greatness within yourself so we can radically change the traditional approach on how to educate in order to best serve our students. As an elementary and secondary educator, keynote speaker, author, consultant and mom, she is here to serve you so you can effectively serve your students through the lens of brain research, social-emotional needs and the whole child!
