CEC’s 2007 Annual Convention & Expo

April 18-21, 2007
Kentucky International Convention Center
Louisville, Kentucky





Welcome to Louisville and CEC’s 2007 Annual Convention & Expo. Louisville, a city of grace and beauty, is a wonderful backdrop to the field’s premiere professional development event. And though the Kentucky Derby may be risky, a sure bet is the value you’ll get from the convention. Nowhere else can you go to get the knowledge and skills that will help you help your students win their race to educational achievement and personal success.

Chicken Soup for the Soul series. A former teacher, Canfield will rekindle the enjoyment and excitement you have for your work, while showing you how to live more, love more, and laugh more throughout your day—and throughout the entire school year.
