President's Message and Special Invitation:
Many will agree that there is no higher calling than making a difference in students’ lives.  Thoseof us who teach today’s PreK-12 students, or prepare tomorrow’s teachers, know that to make a positive difference, we need a supportive community.  We also know to be good at what we teach, we must keep pace with research and participate in professional development.  We need lots of connections to reliable information and people.  We need Phi Delta Kappa International.
