The Conference on English Leadership (CEL) welcomes all those concerned with language arts leadership.

Janice Schwarze Reflects on the Las Vegas CEL Convention:
The highlights of the CEL Conference for me were the keynote speakers. In particular, Tom Romano and Penny Kittle inspired me with their hands-on approach to leadership and writing. It was wonderful to be in a workshop setting where I could put my thoughts into written words and make some sense of them—something that sounds easy for an English teacher but is actually quite difficult because there is never enough time to do the depth of thinking that needs to be done and which was accomplished at this Sunday workshop. Of course, Kelly Gallagher was dazzling as always, and it was a highlight of my career to be able to have lunch with him, introduce him to the CEL participants, and watch the audience soak up his expertise just as I have in previous workshops. Finally, as I embark on implementing Common Core Standards in my district, I was pleased to discover many sessions that focused on the Common Core. Hearing what other districts are doing across the nation provided me with new ideas and with affirmation that our district is headed in the right direction. I always walk away from a CEL convention proud to be an English teacher, and my Vegas experience was no exception.
