Welcome to our 12th Annual Middle School Leadership Conference and the 2nd Middle School 
Teachers Conference in the EARCOS region.  The purpose of this conference is to network and collaborate on topics related to middle level education and leadership.  It is an opportunity for shared learning, discussion, and to support one another in our efforts to provide excellent learning environments for adolescent students.

The EARCOS Middle School Educators conference welcomes administrators, teacher leaders, and instructional facilitators to the two-day MS Leaders Conference on April 8-9. All middle school educators are welcomed to the two-day MS Teachers Conference on April 10-11.

In addition to the keynote speakers, the strength of the conference comes from practitioners' one-hour presentation sessions. This year's break out sessions offer a variety of topics for participants to delve into. For more information, so the presentation description and handout pages. 

About the 2015 Conference
