Registration is now closed for the 2017 IEA Professional Development Conference, which will be held December 1-2, 2017 (Friday evening and Saturday) at the Wyndham Springfield City Centre.

The IEA Professional Development Conference showcases IEA as an official ISBE-sanctioned professional development provider. This is an excellent opportunity for you to both acquire multiple “PD clock hours” (in subject areas such as Classroom Management, Cultural Competency, Special Education, ESSA, Student Engagement, Social/Emotional Learning, and Organizational Leadership) and come away with enhanced leadership skills.

Our keynote speaker will be Pernille Ripp, a teacher, speaker, author, blogger, and passionate advocate for education. In 2010, Pernille founded The Global Read Aloud, a global literacy initiative that began with a simple goal in mind: one book to connect the world. From its humble beginnings, the GRA has grown to connect more than 2,000,000 students in 60 different countries.
