On behalf of the Association for Middle Level Education (formerly National Middle School Association), and the Minnesota Middle School Association,we invite you to experience the most valuable national professional development opportunity for any type of educator who works with grades 5-9: the 40th Annual Conference for Middle Level Education.

This conference offers nationally known speakers, classroom and administrative practitioners, and university personnel presenting hundreds of sessions around the most critical topics for middle level education (see below)   Rates are an exceptional value, and special offers for whole district, whole school, and teams make it feasible to send lots of staff!  As you consider your school calendar for the 2013-2014 school year, we encourage you to include November 7-9, 2013, in your staff development plans and take advantage of this rare opportunity to improve instruction and raise test scores.

Friday, November 8, 2013 would be a perfect day to plan professional development for elementary and senior high staff at home, and to maximize this opportunity to provide amazing middle level professional development for your middle school staff at a national venue without air fare or exorbitant hotel costs. 

Be sure to budget to send a cadre of middle level experts to this conference---and watch for the chance to submit proposals to present---Minnesota Middle Schools have a lot of great things happening!!!
