Next Friday is packed with events for Maine educators, and I’m excited to be right in the thick of it.
While I’m presenting Maine’s Career and Technical Education Teacher of the Year award at our annual CTE conference in Lewiston, educators gathered in nearby Gardiner will be linking Next Generation Science Standards to the Common Core at the Maine Science Teachers Association’s fall conference.
Registration for both conferences is still available at the links above. I’m looking forward to seeing many of Maine’s teachers and administrators Friday, October 5.
