Call for Presenters is Closed

ELMLE's conferences are GREAT because of teachers like YOU! Each year our conference is enriched by members sharing best practice. Not only do teacher presenters bring a high caliber of professionalism, but they encourage collaboration among colleagues. It is a great opportunity to share the work that is going on in various international schools across Europe and beyond. Educators have a forum to learn with and from one another and share ideas that work at this conference catering to the unique strengths and needs of students ages 10-14.

The Call for Presenters is now closed. If you have submitted a proposal we will be in contact with you by Tuesday, October 16, 2019 regarding the status of your proposal. Thank you all for your interest in ELMLE and dedication to middle level education.

Deadline for submission was October 6, 2018.
