Testimonials from last year’s participants

Ann Garfinkle is amazing! Great to get methods that are immediately applicable!

“The technology sessions were very interesting and applicable. The discussions pertaining to why alternative education matters in a special education setting were extremely enlightening.”

“Thank you to the organizers. I enjoyed the conference and the focus was absolutely clear, Montana is strong on educating and supporting our students. ”

“Good presenters. I learned a lot about transition – an area I was weak in.”
