"Instructional leadership is by far the most important skill for leaders today" 
Paraphrased from Kristen Anderson

Kristin Anderson Bio

Come and join your colleagues at the 2018 SMCAA Fall Conference as we explore what it takes to be a strong Instructional Leader.  Our title this year, “Instructional Leadership: Curriculum in Action,” speaks to the connection between a strong viable curriculum and instructional practice, support and evaluation.  These are new times in our state with new standards, assessments and expectations that will require us to be ready to meet these challenges along with all the others that your particular jobs require.

As your new Executive Director of SMCAA, I am excited to provide a conference that will address the unique needs that you have as Curriculum Directors, Instructional Specialists, Coordinators and Teacher Leaders.  Click on the links below to check out specific information about our keynote speaker, Kristin Anderson, along with our breakouts that will inform and inspire.  SMCAA has designed this conference just for YOU!  Register soon and we will see you at the Lake! More Information
