Teachers From Around The Nation Travel To Anchorage For Iditarod Winter Conference For Educators
(Wasilla Alaska) On Tuesday, March 1st, educators from all over the nation will gather in Anchorage to participate in the 2011 Iditarod Winter Conference for Educators. Speakers, field trips and sessions are designed to empower educators with the teaching tools, renewed enthusiasm and the general information necessary to impact classroom curriculum and guide students to academic success using the Last Great Race. The conference is coordinated through the Iditarod Education Program, sponsored by ExxonMobil.
This year's conference is being held at the Hotel Captain Cook, 939 W. 5th Avenue, in Downtown Anchorage. During the four-day conference, attendees will listen to several educational presentations by the 2011 Finalists for Target® Iditarod Teacher on the Trail, as well as previous Teacher on the Trail recipients, and various other special guests and educators. Attendees will also visit the Iditarod Headquarters in Wasilla and the Happy Trails Kennel, which is owned by four-time Iditarod Champion Martin Buser.
The Iditarod Education Program now reaches more than 10,000 schools and hundreds of thousands of students around the globe, and it continues to grow. The Winter Conference gives teachers the opportunity to share ideas and find new ways to incorporate Iditarod learning activities in their classrooms. In an effort to enhance the Conference experience, ExxonMobil will host a welcome reception for the educators on Monday, Feb. 28. In addition, all Conference attendees will receive a one-year "Iditarod Insider" subscription for their respective home schools.
