Seriously, the best professional development event I have ever attended!! More workshops than you could dream of going to, awesome opportunities to interact with fellow teachers and so much stuff to see, do and take home!! I have been teaching for 11 years and have attended many conferences. 2009 was my first NAAE conference experience and it made me ask - why do I go to any other conferences. Become a member, go to the conference, experience it for yourself and you will see that there are only amazing benefits to this organization!!
