2015 Call For Conference Proposals

KCTE invites you to submit proposals for presentations for its spring conference. The theme for
this year’s conference is “Balancing Passion and Practice: Kentucky Teachers Leading the
Way.” Good teaching is as much about passion as it is about best practice. Now more than ever
we are asked to evolve, to repurpose our practice to address the Common Core. We are asked to
adapt to new evaluation systems and assessment measures. How do we adapt yet still follow the
drive of our passion for learning? How do we build a culture of learning that balances passion
and best practice?
