NORWICH – Eleven teachers and administrators from Norwich Middle School will get the chance to learn from some of the top names in their field next month. The group, members of the school’s Comprehensive Education Planning (CEP) Leadership Team, will be attending the annual conference of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) from March 13 to 16 in Orlando, Florida.
The event, Learning Without Boundaries, will give the local educators the opportunity to hear several highly respected speakers including Greg Mortenson.
Mortenson is the founder of the Central Asia Institute and Pennies for Peace, non-profit organizations which build schools and promote community-based education in rural Pakistan and Afghanistan. He has co-authored a book, Three Cups of Tea, about his experience.
