EL Education celebrates diversity of thought and perspectives. We are delighted to welcome these guest experts who will facilitate master classes or serve on panels. As is the case with all NC facilitators who are not EL staff, these guest experts are sharing their own unique genius, and are not representing EL's formal organizational stance on the topic of their session.
Here's a taste of what to expect at #ELNC19:
