Pictures of 2012 Summit!

The 2012 Life Fundamental$ Summit was a great success with 146 teachers in attendance!  Teachers rated the Summit a 5.48 this year (5 being an A), and we had many great comments from them.  

Teacher Comments:

• This is the absolute best conference. It’s small enough for me and very well focused. Highly organized. Directed at practical information for use in the classroom.
• Always a good summit with many resources, exchange of ideas, and meeting with other teachers.
• Best program I’ve attended in 32 years.
• I have been coming to this Summit for several years now and it just seems to get better and better each year. Thank you so very much for all of your time and hard work in putting this excellent program together. I truly appreciate your professionalism, and friendly, helpful hospitality.
• My favorite event for professional development!
• The speakers were enthusiastic about each topic and were knowledgeable as a resource to me.
• Loved the resources provided by vendors. The speakers at lunch were great. Enjoyed the opportunity to come back and network with new friends and colleagues
