THE 2019 TFS CONFERENCE WILL BE HELD NOVEMBER 2, 2019 AT THE TURF VALLEY RESORT IN ELLICOTT CITY, MARYLAND. REGISTRATION WILL OPEN SEPT. 9, 2019.

Who should attend?

TFS covers education strategies for students from preschool to high school.  The conference is appropriate for educators and parents including:

  • General education teachers

  • Special education teachers

  • Paraprofessionals

  • Administrators

  • Counselors

  • Therapists

  • Parents

  • Homeschooling parents

This year, there is again one conference for educators and parents with topics offered that are relevant to both groups. 

Is it worth my time?

Yes!  Past participants have indicated that TFS inspires them and gives them valuable tools to immediately use in their classrooms.  If you have attended TFS in the past, it is definitely worth coming back because the topics change each year.

To get a sense of what TFS is about, watch our short video of conference highlights and read testimonials from past participants.    

Many participants have noted the value of attending TFS with colleagues from their schools, so they can discuss new ideas and how they may work within their school setting.
