A teacher-inspired, teacher-led conference drew about 100 of Shelby County Schools' top-performing teachers to the Mid-South Convention Center in Robinsonville, Miss. last week.
The Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers (ECET2) conference was sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. It offered workshops and tools designed to inspire and motivate teachers and support their continued excellence in the classroom.
Shelby County Schools Superintendent Dorsey Hopson addressed the attendees – all high-performing teachers selected for their passion for education and desire to elevate their profession. He commended them for commitment to their transformative-yet-rarely celebrated work.
