A rekindled passion for teaching and learning! Best conference I’ve ever been a part of! I can’t wait to implement all the things I learned.

Interactive and entertaining presenters who gave real practical ideas that will be easy to implement. Loved that the presenters shared free information online. Best precessional development!

I gained a few new skills to put in my toolbox as a teacher! This has been an invigorating professional development experience!!!!

LaQuinta - Mississippi,

Nuts and Bolts is like a southern tent revival for teachers. I know I can come here and get motivation from the presenters and other teachers to energize me and make me more excited to go back and be a better teacher for my kids.

O’Sheaka - Louisiana,

Your “Deliberate Optimism” philosophy is parallel to my beliefs. I have worked at perfecting it. There have been days I have had to fake it. There have been dark days but with optimism I have been able to overcome and move forward.
