Wilson Certified Teacher Conference

The Wilson® Certified Teacher Conference was created exclusively for WRS Level I and Level II Certified educators who are dedicated to expanding their knowledge and practice.

  • Strengthen your instructional skills in interactive small-group sessions led by master educators who understand teachers’ challenges.
  • Re-energize your passion for teaching by connecting with a community of WRS-certified peers and exchanging ideas.

The Wilson Certified Teacher Conference is held every other year, with the next event scheduled for July 9-10, 2018 (see below for details). This conference offers a wonderful opportunity for teachers to share their Wilson experiences and gather information relevant to their unique needs, which they then can put into practice with students.
