The 2018 Empowered to Lead Symposium will be held on April 26th, 2018, at the Mohegan Sun Convention Center. This year's theme is "Resilience and Rejuvenation." Concurrent sessions will focus on ideas, resources, and best practices designed to generate resilience and rejuvenation in classroom and school settings; strategies for building successful, meaningful partnerships and relationships within the broader educational community; teacher leadership, engagement with policymakers, recruitment and retention, and educational advocacy brought about by mutual understanding and collaboration.
The Empowered to Lead Symposium, an annual event hosted by the Connecticut Teacher of the Year Council, is Connecticut’s premier educational conference.

This transformative event includes inspiring keynote and luncheon speakers; multiple networking opportunities; and interactive sessions that promote the sharing of ideas and resources, innovative strategies and solutions, and collaborative discourse and practices geared toward elevating our profession.
