Sentinel Hosts State-Wide Educators' Conference
The MEA-MFT Educators' Conference, dedicated to bringing top-quality professional development to Montana teachers took place at Sentinel High School October 16th and 17th. According to MEA-MFT Conference Chair, Mrs. Margo Duneman, there were 2,200 teachers registered for the even with some late admissions.
It was an incredible experience and opportunity for teachers to gather in one location and do what students do daily--learn. They were gathered to experience new opportunities and ideas to use in the classroom. There was every form of presentation from people dressing up in full historical dress to men in suits presenting new ideas on highly specific areas of history.
Helping the conference attendees were students in all parts of the school, rushing about to help with anything they could. Mrs. Duneman claims that she has had many teachers from all over the State talk about how helpful the Sentinel students were. "The kids in the green shirts" were doing just about everything from carrying bags, to replacing food, to taking pictures. It was an exhausting experience for sure, but as teachers told Mrs. Duneman, it was one of the most successful and amazing conventions they'd been to.
So, thank you to all Sentinel student volunteers and Sentinel staff for doing such a wonderful job of making this an incredible experience for everyone! Conference logo by Tessa Johnson, a Sentinel sophomore.
