The Michigan Reading Association Annual Conference is one of my favorite conferences of the year. It’s only a state-wide conference, but it attracts educators and professionals from all across the country. It’s a great weekend to reconnect and recharge, and at the end of March, we all need that extra boost to push us through the rest of the school year with our expected levels of awesomeness.
This year, Colby Sharp and Lisa Rivard have put together a Pure Michigan Kick-Off to MRA on Friday night. It has Lip Sync battles (think Jimmy Fallon), Ignite-style talks (featuring the best of Michigan’s educators. . .and me. I don’t know how I snuck in there), a cash bar, and just a great way to open up the conference. If you’re going to be at MRA this year, Friday night is CAN’T-MISS! And it’s FREE! Colby put together a website with all the relevant information. I can’t wait to see you all there!
