Quotes from previous conference attendees:
"First of all, many thanks for putting the effort into crafting an excellent conference. I'm amazed by the quality of the MEEA conferences."

"Really, it's one of the most valuable conferences I have attended on a regular basis."

"I can tell you that my experience at MEEA was very beneficial to my professional development as an educator. As someone who is on the ground, working directly with the kids on a daily basis, it was so refreshing to be amongst others working toward like goals in the field. The daily grind can take its toll on my inspiration, which is why conferences like these are so valuable. Not only do they energize our passion to reach children in new ways, but they encourage us to keep moving forward in our pursuits. It is also so great to hear from those who have been teaching for years, and learn from their earned experience."
