The New Teacher National Summit is KDP's first virtual event dedicated to new teachers, and one that we could not be more thrilled to share with you! Join us for a half-day of learning, networking, and preparing for the upcoming school year. We will focus on issues that are relevant to new teachers, as we share a variety of speakers on topics such as classroom management, fostering positive relationships with parents, and teacher mental health, among others. Please join us for a day of learning, laughing, and networking!
