Welcome to the official TEDxMCPSTeachers event blog. The TEDxMCPSTeachers team is thrilled to be planning this program and excited to bring you an event that will both inspire and excite you about the future of public education in Missoula. If you didn’t make the connection, MCPS refers to Missoula County Public Schools. The district completed a year-long effort in August 2011 to create a 21st Century Model of Education that will guide the development of curricula and programs for several years. In addition, we made a committment to model integration of the elements of the 21st century plan, as a district, for students, staff, teachers, parents and general public. We believe that organizing a TEDx event is an excellent way to do that — it is fresh, informative and engaging. We hope you will follow this blog as we continue our event planning and begin providing more details about the May 9 event.
