Featured Speakers

The theme for this year's conference is Implementing and Assessing NGSS. Due the demand for the conference and venue space restrictions, there will not be a single keynote. Instead this year we will be offering several "Featured Speakers". These are nationally recognized experts on Implementing or Assessing NGSS.
