2014 Fall Conference
Taking Charge of Your Destiny
October 26 - 27, 2014
Ocean Place Resort and Spa

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2014 Fall Conference.  As this year’s theme, Taking Charge of Your Destiny, suggests, the conference inspired and motivated attendees to take charge of their fate and gave them ideas and tools to empower them to be excellent educators. It was an educational and inspiring two days for all! 


  • "Wow, where do I begin? I love everything about the conference. The bonfire was great!  Sessions were great.  A lot of hard work went into the conference."
  • "I saw people I don't usually get to see and made some new contacts. Came back to work feeling energized. Bonfire was fun!"
  • "Thank You to everyone who made #njasl14 such a PD success!  Good sessions, events, and speakers made seeing our colleagues that much more fun!"
  • "The main reason I attend each year is to be immersed for 2-3 days with people who actually 'get' what it is we do and need to do. Kind of like recharging the batteries as being the only one of your kind in a building wears you down!"
