TFS to host statewide conference for educators

 
 

The Georgia Independent School Association (GISA) recently announced Tallulah Falls School has been selected as one of two sites for the 2019 GISA Annual Conference.

The North Georgia Conference will take place Nov. 4 at Tallulah Falls School and the South Georgia Conference will take place Nov. 11 at Valwood School in Hahira.

According to Tallulah Falls School President and Head of School Dr. Larry A. Peevy, the North Georgia Conference has historically been held in Atlanta and TFS is the first school to host the North Georgia Conference in the new format.

“We are truly honored GISA has selected Tallulah Falls School to host this event in 2019,”  Peevy said. “We are expecting as many as 500 attendees on campus in November. We are very excited to host this conference and to be able to showcase our school to so many professional educators from across the region.”

GISA-member schools send educators to the daylong conference each year, with TFS traditionally scheduling a teacher workday for students to allow for full participation by faculty and staff members.

High-profile speakers provide inspiration and motivation as part of the conference. Workshops and vendors round out the day’s continuing education focus.

Keynote speakers for the 2019 conference are Janice Crampton, CEO of Association of Independent School Admission Professions and Debra Wilson, National Association of Independent Schools General Counsel and President-elect for the Southern Association of Independent Schools.

Tallulah Falls School will send buses to Atlanta to shuttle attendees who would like to take advantage of complimentary service to campus, Peevy added.
