Planning continues for the 2018 NSTA National Conference, which will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center and Omni Hotel in Atlanta March 15-18, 2018. Here are some of the highlights that are already planned.
Keynote Speaker - Ron Clark
A 2000 Disney American Teacher of the Year awardee, Ron Clark will share his journey from teaching in a low-wealth rural area in North Carolina to the inner-city streets of Harlem in New York City. Ron will use stories from his experiences with his students and examples of award-winning projects they conducted to show how to motivate and inspire disinterested students. In 2006, he founded The Ron Clark Academy, an inner-city school serving students from across metro Atlanta. The privately funded institution is unique for its innovative teaching methods and curriculum based on worldwide travel. Each year the students, grades 5 through 8, apply their in-class lessons to international adventures. He has also authored several books, including The Essential 55: An Award-Winning Educator's Rules For Discovering the Successful Student in Every Child. Thursday, March 15, 2018, 9:15–10:30 AM
