Administrator Academy

The T³™ International Conference has, for 25 years, been recognized as a "marquis" professional development opportunity for math and science educators. In response to many requests from school district leaders, we have added a new T³ Administrator Academy to our conference lineup.

The new T³ Administrator Academy will focus on providing practical information and powerful perspectives on successful technology implementation in the critical areas of science and mathematics instruction. This is your opportunity to engage with colleagues around the country to explore how technology and associated professional development for your math and science teachers can positively impact teacher performance and student achievement.
