2014 QuEST Conference

More than 600 teachers and PSRPs participated in the BTU’s 32nd Annual QuEST Conference on Oct. 17th at the Baltimore Convention Center. Participants were treated to some very dynamic guest speakers, including, the Mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Dr. Gregory Thornton, CEO for City Schools, Dr. Linda Chen, Chief Academic Officer for BCPSS and Dr. Nakia Hardy, Director of Teaching and Learning.

The most dynamic speaker though, was the guest speaker, Cynthia Butler-McIntyre, Past-President of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. As a former educator, she spoke about how things haven’t changed much. She said education is still run by politics and still under attack.

In addition to the speakers, participants had the opportunity to attend several workshops from Zumba to thinking Math skills. Teachers and PSRPs left the Convention Center with a better understanding of their job and with the tools to move their students forward.
