Friday Five: Conferences to Attend as an English Teacher

I’m always amazed at how rejuvenated I feel after attending a conference. NCTE’s recent conference in Atlanta Georgia reminds me how important connecting with colleagues from all over the country and the state can be for educators.  Coming together and realizing we’re not alone, and we face similar issues and share similar triumphs is an important part of my mental health as an educator.  To that end, here’s a Friday Five list of conferences you may find useful to attend in the future to rekindle excitement, to spark ideas, and to meet kindred spirits.
