Manor ISD Guest Presenter Updates


Thank you for agreeing to be a guest presenter at Manor Independent School District's first teaching and learning institute. Our committee is in full gear, preparing for the return of all of our MISD educators and I'm certain that each of you are busy preparing for MPACT, as well as the upcoming school year at your own campuses and/or organizations.

Presenting at MPACT is going to be a ton of fun. Our keynote speaker is SaulPaul, a native of Austin, TX. We also have over 20 exhibitors from various non-profit organizations, who are collaborating with us on our first conference. Most importantly, we have 85 Manor ISD presenters, 23 guest presenters from various school districts surrounding Austin and representation from the collegiate level and educational consulting agencies, who will deliver training on over 50 different session topics. As you can see, we are extremely excited about the support that is pouring in from so many different avenues, and we thank you for being a part of this endeavor.

I have included a tentative schedule that will give you an idea of the time and dates that your session (s) will be offered, based on your preferences for dates and times. All of our teachers have MacBook Pro's and iPads, and are encouraged to bring these devices to all sessions because one of our goals is to be a paperless institute.

With this in mind, SCHED Planner is the online tool that MPACT will use for participants to build their itineraries. I have already built your profiles on SCHED Planner, but will be forwarding you information regarding this tool so that you will know how to update your profiles, if necessary as well as navigate through it to view your personal schedules for the day of the institute.

As we get closer to the event, I will send you more updates regarding MPACT. Should you have any questions beforehand, please do not hesitate to email me at or contact me via phone at 214-502-8390. I look forward to meeting each of you.
