Brainstorm 2017 has ended

Welcome to the Brainstorm 2017: Future Ready Students conference website.

PLEASE NOTE:  Using this tool to mark your personal scheduling preferences does not reserve a seat for marked sessions, nor does it register you for the conference.  

We do not plan to have paper programs available on site.
 If you would like a printed program, select the printer icon to the right to print a personal copy.  

Brainstorm 2017 is held in a public space, therefore we do not prohibit participants, exhibitors, sponsors, or news organizations from photographing conference activities. VSTE, SVTC and James Madison University reserve the right to use images taken at the Conference with your photograph and/or likeness on social media and/or in future marketing materials. We are NOT responsible for individual attendee’s use of your image or likeness.

Parking will be available on campus but it is limited. Consider car pooling.

Thank to EN Computers for their support of this event.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are endless. ~ Mother Teresa

I teach 2nd grade at a wonderful school. I love my job and the teachers I work with. When I am not working or grading papers you can find me playing with my grandson, reading on my porch or relaxing with my family.
