A Professional Development STAYcation
June 9th, 2022
Cambria Hotel Whiskey Row

Rock the Block Literacy Conference is geared toward current educators who want to expand their capacity in literacy, math, and SEL instruction for maximum student growth. Rock the Block differs from other professional development series because we utilize educational experts who are currently teaching in real-life classrooms to lead the learning. We aim to ensure that teachers feel seen, heard, valued, and invested in, especially after such trying times in the educational climate over the past few years. Attendees will leave with actionable strategies to implement in their classrooms, understand the theory behind best practice, and have a community of fellow educators for support.
