D.E.I. Virtual Final Stretch Conference 2021
Hello colleagues! We hope you are healthy and well during these extraordinary times in history.
We are so grateful to be able to hold our 8th annual conference virtually, with so many wonderful presenters giving their time and expertise to the larger educational community, even with their own busy schedules and lives. As a bonus, and because of our online format, we will be able to have educators from around the country join us in our learning as all of our sessions will be held through Zoom webinars.
As all of our Final Stretch conferences have had in the past, the days will be filled with engaging, practical, and comprehensive workshops designed to make these remote days of learning the most effective and exciting they can be. We will also be providing many raffles to you through book packages and other prizes. We will be posting all of the raffle prizes on a Google Doc which you will be able to view even before the conference begins.
The conference will take place on the following days and times:
Wednesday, 4/7/2021 & Thursday, 4/8/2021
Wednesday, 4/14/2021 & Thursday, 4/15/2021
All sessions will run from 3:15 PM-4:15 PM and 4:25 PM-5:25 PM.

We are so excited and honored that the Keynote, kicking off the conference on April 7, 2021, will be facilitated by award-winning illustrator/author, Elisha Cooper. D.E.I. has been a huge fan of his work for a while now, and we are certain that you will fall in love with his books as well. You can learn more about him by visiting his website:
The cost of the EIGHT SESSIONS will be a reduced rate of $65 for all teachers. As always, administrators will attend at no charge.
