As you probably know, Texas IB Schools is always a global sponsor of the annual conference, but this year, TIBS is also part of the host committee along with the IB schools in Louisiana. We would love to see our organization represented in New Orleans by you and others from your school, if possible. Click here to register for the conference. The "early bird" special price is good through January 31.

Because we know what amazing educational activities go on in your schools and classrooms, we would like to encourage you to present a breakout session during the conference as well . These 75-minute sessions are the heart and soul of the conference. They provide the chance to share with your IB peers from across the globe about ways to better meet the needs of your students - an innovative way of teaching and learning, a scholarly analysis, or an inspirational story. We are particularly interested in best practice sessions in one or more of IB's four programmes, and sessions on educational leadership within the IB context. To submit a proposal, follow this link .

Finally, as a part of the host committee, Texas IB Schools will be asked to provide some art work to be on display during the conference. We will provide information at a later date regarding medium, themes, etc., but again, we would love to show off the good things that we know are happening in your schools. Stay tuned for the details.

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans in July!
