The National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) will be holding its Annual Conference in Long Beach, CA this summer — June 30-July 2.  CEI is excited to announce that once again we will be holding a “panel meeting” discussion with some of CEI’s top leaders.

To get the best conference rates, sign up before February 20 for the NAESP early bird registration.

Join me, and CEI Board members Dr. Kathleen Sciarappa, Dr. Nancy Phenis-Bourke, and Paul Liabenow, along with Dr. Melissa Patsche, Jill Flanders, Heather Smith, Greg Egnor, and others as we discuss how we are implementing 21st Century learning and consider Classrooms of the Future.


t the CEI session come aboard our Innovations Ship as we imagine the future. With our distinguished panel we will discuss how neuroscience, heart centered education, STEM, rigor, and principal mentoring are being implemented in ways that advance critical thinking, student metacognition, problem solving, and deep conceptual understanding. Learn from principals, researchers, NAESP State Association Executives, CEI Board members, and more.  Our session will include time for sharing from the field. We invite you to bring news of your innovations and to be ready to brainstorm on Next Steps.
