Our annual National Teacher Institute brings together educators from all over the world. This four day event includes workshops, lectures, and tours from some of the leading experts in the history and education fields. Educators will be immersed in a friendly and engaging learning environment, where they will be able to network with other educators, learn new and innovative teaching methods, and network with like minded professionals.
