#OMLA2018 - Getting to the Core of Middle Level Education. The 800+ educators who had the opportunity to attend #OMLA2018 heard strategies, ideas, and practices that brought us back to the core of middle level education. George Couros (@gcouros) lit up the room as the keynote on Thursday pushing the attendees to a more innovative, experimental mindset. Kim Campbell (@KimCamp4Kids), a dynamic presenter, broke out into song and took us on a roller coaster of emotions from laughter to tears and back to laughter with her stories recognizing the importance of building relationships with students and colleagues. As a featured presenter, Jack Berckemeyer (@jberckemeyer) re-energized those in the room by sharing his passion, humor, and expertise for middle level education.
