KDP Convo 2023, the Premier Conference for Future Teachers

Connect with fellow future teachers from KDP’s national community to learn, grow, and have fun together on your journey from campus to classroom.

KDP Convo 2023 is your destination to help you: 

  • Obtain professional skills, knowledge, and practical advice from those currently teaching;
  • Set yourself apart through leadership and growth opportunities;
  • Draw out your own excellence by seeing examples of excellence in teaching;
  • Reignite your passion for teaching by being around like-minded individuals and mentors;
  • Broaden your philosophy by exposing you to new ideas, concepts, and perspectives; and
  • Remind you that it’s important to care for YOU as you’re entering a challenging profession.

Space will be limited to 750 attendees, and KDP Convo 2023 is anticipated to be a sold-out conference, so be sure to secure your spot once registration opens on March 31, 2023!
