Never has collaboration been more important in schools.  Common Core State Standards, literacy coaching, professional learning communities, co-teaching, mentoring, tweets, wikis, Google Docs, literature circles, and other initiatives and resources have the potential to bring together educators and students across the world.  While these opportunities for collaboration are exciting, they also can present challenges.

If you are wrestling with the challenges or have experiences that could help provide insight on them, the 2014 CEL Convention is the place for you.  CEL is a professional community dedicated to developing leadership qualities in English educators. The CEL Annual Convention is an opportunity for leaders to gather, share ideas, and grow. Attendees have the unique quality to network over breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, and social gatherings. Indeed, it is the perfect place to hone our collaborative leadership skills.

All Convention activities will take place at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center
