Our Marathon Continues

Navigating Challenges and Reaching the Finish Line

MCTE’s Fall Conference 2023

Nipsey Hustle reminds us, “Even as you make progress, you need the discipline to keep from backtracking and sabotaging the success as it’s happening.” For our 2023 Convention, we hope to collectively and broadly learn how to continue this race as educators amidst the educational struggles and hurdles. The MCTE 2023 Conference will be an opportunity to receive the tools to run the best race you can and a space for you to become recharged and inspired to continue to be the best educator you can be.
