Our Connection to Educators

Once upon a time, in a place that was not too far from our own earth, there were teachers and administrators, educators of all description. Their intent was to help young souls learn and grow in a hundred positive ways.

Despite certain difficulties and challenges, they did this without complaint and they constantly searched for the difference that, if applied, would improve upon their already effective ways.

One was heard to say, “I am seeking a method whereby this idea can be understood more readily.” Another would add, “I have heard of a place in a distant land where people came together to learn about this exact thing but by the time I knew of this opportunity it had passed.”

In this world, the educators would search on the net and read in journals and in this way find out about this conference or that meeting. However, it was often only by good luck that they discovered it. In many cases, they chose to go to the same gatherings that they had attended in previous years only because of the difficulties in discovering the workshops that were right for them.

Then one evening a couple of these educators were sitting around a table enjoying a beverage when one said to the other, “what if people didn’t have to spend hours upon hours searching for just the right conference? What if there were a single location where people could quickly find out about hundreds and hundreds of events that happen throughout the year? They could find the exact thing they were looking for and while attending and learning also visit the interesting locations that surround us in this wonderful world.”

With that idea and much laborious investigation, we created Educators Professional Development.
