What Our Teachers Say

  • " I’ve been to so many conferences, both as an educator and an academic, and this was by far one of the best."
  • "Learning and connecting with others at ELMLE is one of the highlights of my year. I love to be able to share my practice and learn from my like-minded educators."
  • "The smaller conference size creates a warm and collegial atmosphere. It's definitely one of the best conferences I know of today."
  • "It's brilliant to have these organisations (NWEA MAP, IBO MYP) present at the conference and us not having to do two conferences."
  • "Rosalind's opening keynote was fantastic. She is a dynamic speaker and her knowledge of adolescents and the issues of social media were spot on."
  • "The presenters were personable and knowledgeable and did a great job of balancing information and activities with time to process, reflect, and integrate into our own units."
  • "The speakers and the variety of teacher presenters provided easy, useable tools for immediate implementation in the classroom."
