Apple for Your Thoughts

Feb. 4, 2022

Once again this year, your Teachers’ Convention will be online. We really miss seeing your faces and answering your questions in person! However, be sure to watch for our live or pre-recorded presentations at your online convention. 

You may remember during last year’s Teachers’ Conventions we gave away five Apple Watches with our social media campaign. Well, as conventions are once again online and we aren’t incurring travel and other expenses we normally see during convention season, we’re turning those funds into another Apple Watch contest for 2022!

Rallying a Community of Support for Education Workers

Nov. 15, 2021

We can all agree that the last few school years have been tough for education workers.
