Announcing: ACTFL Teacher of the Year Yo Azama to Keynote 2014 Fall Conference

Always thought provoking, Azama promises to address our theme, Diversity, Equity,  and World Languages: Empowering Teachers for Change.  A native of Okinawa, he teaches Japanese at North Salinas High School in Salinas, California with dynamic interactive activities. Widely published in the field of language education and culture, Azama has been addressing conference attendees with his uncanny sense of humor and insights since he was named the ACTFL 2012 Teacher of the Year.

This year's Fall Conference will take place at Earle Brown Heritage Center in Brooklyn Center as it traditionally does. We have made an overwhelmingly positive migration to the weekend following the Education Minnesota conference, Friday, October 24. In another effort to better accommodate World Language teachers, intensive 3-hour workshops will be held post-conference on Saturday, October 25, instead of pre-conference. We hope to see you there!

Registration is NOW OPEN.
