IATE Conference

(I get to go to this in October with the other two Midland English teachers. Sounds neat. Haven't been to a good conference in years. I actually presented at the IATE conference back in 1995 with Dr. Bruce Leland from Western Illinois University, about creating classroom communites through email.)
