Viva Las Vegas! Viva ESGI!

The first year we decided to take ESGI on the road to the SDE I Teach K! conference in Vegas we had an awesome time, but we wondered, “Was it beginner’s luck?” In 2015 we decided to “double down” and go back for a second year. We met more teachers, gave away more prizes and did double our fun from the first conference. This year we are headed back to fabulous Las Vegas with even bigger and better prizes in the bags. We know it’ll be outstanding. The third time’s the charm, right?!
