Many of us were fortunate to have teachers like Hannah Ward who helped nurture our love of learning. In our new Unleash Possible video, Hannah explains why it’s her goal to make every interaction count as a second-year teacher at Union Elementary School.

As members of MASS, we also have to make sure every interaction counts as we work together to build a brighter future for Mississippi. That’s why we’re excited about our 2019 Summer Convention taking place July 7-12 at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi.

The Summer Convention is not just a great networking event but also an opportunity to communicate with state leaders, legislators and other decision-makers who will determine the future of education in Mississippi. During this year’s convention, we’ll hear from candidates for governor and lieutenant governor as they discuss the issues that matter most to us.

We’re also devoting a significant portion of the agenda to technology trends and developments and understanding how they can be used more effectively to improve student outcomes.

In addition, we plan to celebrate a special milestone. MASS turns 50 this year, and we’ve invited leaders from our Association’s rich history to reflect on the progress MASS has made and the future our members can help shape if we continue staying connected and working together.

Register today for the 2019 Summer Convention and be a part of Mississippi’s premier event for education leaders!
