2006 State Conference

Professional Studio Practices & Hands On Pedagogy ~ Twin Falls, Idaho

The 2006 Conference in Twin Falls was a great success, thanks to the hard work of IMTA President David French, our presenters, and our members who traveled from far and wide to attend. If you missed out, you missed a lot...

  • Business, finance, tax, and policy tips
  • Quick, easy and delicious dinner menus for busy teachers
  • How to "Stop Accumulating and Start Filing"
  • How and why to get Nationally Certified
  • Ideas and instructions for a studio website
  • Master classes and sessions by Robert Vandall, NCTM

Members CAME from all over the state of Idaho, from as far away as Post Falls.
Members LEFT with giveaways, prizes, laughs, ideas, the state membership directory, and even a cookbook by Charlotte Hillam!
