Were you able to attend the 2010 Teaching-Family Association Conference in Columbus, Ohio back on November 18th through 20th? What an amazing 3 days it was! The information sharing was non-stop. Last year approximately 140 people from youth services organizations across the country attended the annual TFA Conference. This year we had approximately 200 attendees! Everyone that we spoke with left the conference completely satisfied and armed with much more knowledge about the Teaching-Family Model than when they arrived.

For those of you who attended the TFA conference you probably saw the Innovative Teaching Systems booth. For 3 days we showed off our new website and this blog. We also walked attendees through the Teaching Family Services Online Store where we sell Teaching-Family Model Training Materials. We received some excellent feedback on the website and on our training materials. We wanted to take this opportunity to say “Thank You” to everyone stopped by the booth!

As we mentioned in an earlier post, Attending the Teaching-Family Association Conference this November?, Cristy Schlientz led a number of breakout sessions during the conference. Among other topics, Cristy delivered informative sessions on Motivation Systems and on her Values Curriculum. A number of attendees shared with us that Cristy’s sessions were the most information of the entire conference! If you missed the conference or even if you attended, but missed Cristy’s sessions, please feel free to contact Innovative Teaching Systems to setup an information session on Motivation Systems or Values Curriculum.

Thanks again to EVERYONE who came out for the Teaching-Family Association Conference this year. A special thanks to those of you who attended Cristy’s sessions. If you were unable make the TFA conference this year, be sure to come out next year so that you can take advantage of all of the amazing information sharing sessions on the Teaching-Family Model.
