Testimonial is a regular feature of the new IMLA website. This is where we’ll share reflections from IMLA members about what they’ve taken from our conference and implemented in their schools.
The following Testimonial comes from Kim Tiersma, 6th grade Social Studies Teacher at Nampa Christian
As a first time attendee to IMLA last February, I was encouraged by the energetic desire to teach and impact students at the middle school level. It is easy to fall into the repetition of everyday tasks while teaching, but the IMLA conference gave practical and realistic ideas that could be used the next week in my classroom. The ideas from the seminars tied in nicely to the general speakers who were not only entertaining, but challenged those in attendance to communicate better with students by forming respectful relationships and instill the same energetic desire to be life long learners.
Many thanks to Kim for sharing this with us. We hope you’ll come see us in February and pick up many new ideas and strategies you can implement, as well. Don’t forget to register!
