We are thrilled to be bringing back our very own Vanguardian, Allison Townsend, the Georgia Teacher of the Year as this year's keynote speaker at the event. Allison, a graduate of Clemson in 2012 and 3rd grade teacher at Barnwell Elementary School, is currently on a one-year sabbatical working directly with the Georgia Department of Education speaking across the state among serving on statewide committees, attending and participating in conferences, and conducting professional development.


We are so thrilled she was able to add us to her agenda! This is a keynote kick-off you don't want to miss!


In addition, Allison plans on staying and presenting a session on Co-Planning Learning: How Student Questions Drive a Unit of Study with Vanguardian Daniel Hodge.
