2017 Conference Recap

We had an amazing time at this year’s OCTELA conference. From all of our breakout sessions to our wonderful keynotes, it was a weekend full of excitement and energy. On Friday, attendees got to hear inspiring keynotes by Dr. Ernest Morrell, A.S. King, and Dr. Danny Cohen. On Saturday, attendees were treated to wonderful keynotes from Matt de la Pena and Dr. Kevin Cordi.

Random thoughts:

  • #OCTELA17 was trending on Twitter at various points over the two days. We even made it to #4 for a brief period on Saturday!
  • The Scholastic Book Fair was a success. It will be back for 2018 with the same BOGO offer on all books!
