FALL BACK INTO FCSEM with a FALL CONFERENCE! NOVEMBER 2nd & 3rd
You asked for it and FCSEM will deliver...a fall conference! It’s All About Adulting is the theme for the 2018 Conference and our agenda for November 2 and 3 is one you won't want to miss. Join your fellow FCSEM colleagues and friends on the campus of Western Michigan University to learn new strategies, tips, and tricks for your classes to help your students be more successful at adulting as they go out to live their lives.
In addition to a new time of the year for the conference, we will be bringing you to a new venue at WMU, have new exhibitors present, a new caterer (local legend Off The Cuff Catering) providing food and refreshments, new experiences and new and favorite presenters. Here is just a quick sneak peek of some of our presenters:
Back by popular demand… Su Nottingham! She will bring her fun strategies and activities for your classroom. Her focus is Health, but her strategy ideas can be implemented in any class. Another favorite… Michelle Hiscock! She will be sharing technology tips and tricks to motivate you and your students to be tech savvy! Newcomer… Stacey Sills, whose area of expertise is the topic of Human Trafficking. A topic that every teacher (unfortunately) needs to be aware of.
Please see the FCSEM Website for more details.
