My name is Sara Abeita, and I am a Biology teacher at Free State High School in Lawrence Kansas. I am also a member of the Kansas Association of Biology Teachers (KABT) and wanted to share with you about our upcoming Fall Professional Development Conference, which is coming up on September 22nd. The conference will be held at the KU Field Station's Armitage Education Center in Lawrence Kansas from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
I know that a full Saturday is hard to give up, but I feel that this conference is a low-cost and high-value opportunity for Biology educators to learn and collaborate. I have attended the conference the last five years and always walk away with new things to try in my classroom. KABT is full of passionate and motivated practicing educators that push me to improve my teaching. It costs $15 to attend the conference, with an optional KABT membership for additional $15. Lunch will be provided during the conference and all presenter resources will be shared via a google drive folder.
I linked a flier and schedule for the event, and hope that you consider attending. There is more information available at kabt.org or on our facebook page. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and to forward this on to other educators who you think would benefit from the conference.
