Nationally noted educational consultant and author Dr. Anita Archer presented a keynote titled, "The Time is Always." She tied her presentation to nine key promises that educators must make to their students each day. These promises were linked to "Archerisms," a series of mottoes for teaching and managing. Anita is noted for her motivation and insights into how to reach and teach all students. Her bottom line resonated throughout the conference, "Teach with passion. Manage with compassion."
