It’s always a great feeling to end things on a positive note. For MASS, 2021 has been a year of progress that has set the stage for a promising year ahead.

A pivotal achievement was the release of our three-year strategic plan, which includes a heightened emphasis on professional development and mentoring opportunities for our members.

Meanwhile, our Summer Convention was the largest in MASS history, offering unique opportunities for networking, sharing ideas, and gaining a broader perspective of the challenges and opportunities facing Mississippi’s public schools.

In addition to sharpening our internal perspective in 2021, MASS stayed focused on the big picture by continuing to advocate for increased funding for public education and teacher salaries in Mississippi.

Throughout the year, MASS kept the momentum moving forward with unprecedented participation from our members. With that in mind, we hope you plan to attend the 2022 Winter Convention set for Jan. 23-26 at the Jackson Hilton. Just follow this link to register and reserve your place:

MASS appreciates your continued support, and we hope you have a safe and joyful holiday season and a happy new year!
