- Education Support Professionals are a valuable part of every child's school experience. ESP roles in schools include bus drivers, custodians, paraeducators, and clerical workers. This year's conference will feature sessions that include paraeducator leaders. Their experiences and leadership improve our schools and directly impact student learning. The conference will begin with a Vermont-NEA produced video, "I am From Here" featuring Vermont students of color and their perspective on racial equity in our state. This movie, created by Bess O'Brien from Kingdom Productions, funded by a generous grant from NEA's Center for Great Public Schools, will allow our ESP members to talk about racial justice and what we can do as we acknowledge our own implicit biases. Although everyone will have an opportunity to engage in discussion around this video, there will an opportunity for a deeper dive offered as both morning and afternoon sessions. Click on the "Agenda" link at the top of the page for breakout session details. You will select sessions as you complete the registration process. Hot breakfast, buffet lunch, and snacks will be provided. Parking vouchers for the Hilton garage will be available for attendees. Car pooling is strongly encouraged! Discounted overnight rooms are also available at the Hilton for the night of March 28th. Details on how to book a room in our block will be provided on the confirmation page after you complete registration, and also in confirmation emails. We are looking forward to this year's conference and are proud to be able to offer this as part of our ongoing professional learning opportunities with Vermont-NEA.
