The ASCD communications team cordially invites members of the media to ASCD Empower17: The Conference for Every Educator.
For decades, ASCD's annual conference has brought together thousands of educators from every level of the education spectrum, and has been the go-to gathering for meaningful professional learning.
Reporters can expect to get exclusive access to top thought leaders, authors, and newsmakers in education in our full-service media room. Come hear about the latest trends, successes, and news from the education community.
ASCD's Executive Director and CEO Deborah S. Delisle will also be stopping by to comment and discuss the state of education. Delisle is a former U.S. Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education appointed by President Obama and confirmed by the U.S. Senate on April 27, 2012. She has served as a teacher, gifted education specialist, curriculum director, elementary school principal, district associate superintendent, and superintendent, as well as serving as Ohio's 35th state superintendent of public instruction from 2008 to 2011. Delisle is listed among Ed Week's "21 Women All K–12 Educators Should Know."
