EAST Logo Summer Seminar 2018

Event Details


Summer may be a bridge from one school year to the next, but we at EAST® know that for many educators, it sometimes feels like more of a hike all its own. Like all challenges, we believe it is the team that gets us through. So we formally invite all EAST facilitators to join us for Tech Camp and Summer Seminar, an EAST professional development experience that offers guidance, learning and exploration in an engaging and fun way. But don’t just take our word for. Past participants have consistently called it “the best PD available, bar none.” Whether it’s usable tips, tools, skills or advice for next school year that you’re looking for, you’re on the right path. Collaborate with colleagues and have fun doing it. This year, we invite you to Find Your Trail in Fayetteville! Bring the family and join us!
