needs your help!

Do you know of an area or national K-12 conference? TEAMS is looking to send members to various teacher focused conferences, but to do that we need to find out which conferences exist and when and where they are held. These meetings can be relevant to studies of standardized testing (such as the AP, the SAT other national or state testing), of content or discipline (such as English, History, Art, Music, etc.), or anything else that either completely or partially focuses upon the study of the Middle Ages.

Please send conference information to:

Dr. Thomas Goodmann
(University of Miami)
