The Fall 2018 OHASSTA Conference is fast approaching. A host of high quality workshops should ensure our usual attendance of about 200 - 250 delegates. This year we are partnering with ACS and we hope to draw delegates from all over the country representing the whole educational spectrum including classroom teachers, administrators, student teachers, professors and researchers. I am taking this opportunity to invite your participation in OHASSTA’s 2018 Conference.
