Why Attend?

It takes each and every staff member to make a great school – and great professional development. At #AMLE21, we believe that bringing together a diverse range of educators helps create meaningful learning experiences is much the same. Assembled at the conference you’ll find superintendents, principals, assistant principals, teachers, counselors, instructional coaches, professors, university students, and more from different states and countries and different school settings and grade configurations.

What all of these attendees have in common is a passion for meeting the educational needs of students aged 10-15.

Each attendee comes with different needs, and #AMLE21 provides a diverse range of opportunities to help them accomplish
their objectives.
