Call for Presenters is now Open!

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.

If you have a special area of interest, expertise, or want to share some of the great things happening at your school, the Call for Presenters is open NOW. Join us!

Deadline for submission is September 28, 2018.
