2018 Educators Rising National Conference

On June 21-24, 2018, over 1,300 Educators Rising students and their teacher leaders gathered in Orlando, FL for four jammed-packed days of competitions, breakout sessions, and thought-provoking dialogue. Congratulations to our outstanding competition winners, all of whom are listed in the Ed Rising Virtual Campus

We want to make sure the important conversations started during this year’s conference do not end in Orlando. We encourage anyone who wants to continue the dialogue, as well as those who couldn’t make it this year, to join the 2018 Ed Rising Conference Discussion Facebook group to continue conversations around important topics in education with your peers.

To revisit the experience, download the 2018 conference program book.  Please visit the Educators Rising Facebook page for a gallery of pictures from throughout the four days. Contact info@educatorsrising.org for usage permissions, and for more pictures!
