Christine Javier, Educational Consultant for and Founder of the Learning Ridge, LLC, offers insight on her favorite hotspots near the Convention site at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.
In 1993, Tameyer Evans was a sixth-grader at Coan Middle School in Atlanta, Georgia.
"Every year at Convention, people come up to me and ask me how it's going. I always say, 'This is for you, so you tell me,'" said Heidi Ham, Vice President, NAA. "Our goal at NAA is to inspire, connect and equip afterschool professionals—and Convention is all about the participant experience."
Did you know that The National Afterschool Association is a great resource for professional development supporting healthy eating and physical activity (HEPA) in afterschool? A recent survey of the Afterschool Today magazine readers listed NAA as a place to get valuable resources and information to improve HEPA offerings and teaching practices.
This year for NAA's Annual Convention, we're offering something new. "Destination Play Dallas" offers participants an opportunity to explore the wonderful city of Dallas during their stay.
