The New England League of Middle Schools has been providing middle level educators with an opportunity to come together and share ideas, current research, and best practices for 40 years!  Our conference strands demonstrate our mission to focus on middle level topics that are both current and developmentally appropriate for young adolescents.


We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to share your ideas and successes with colleagues from around New England. As an accepted presenter, you will receive a discount on the registration fee for the conference. Only presenters who have completed ALL the presenter requirements will be eligible for any presenter discount. Up to two (2) presenters per workshop will receive the presenter discount on the registration fee.


Session Information:

All concurrent sessions are 45 minutes long and Lesson Plan Sessions are 20 minutes long. If you feel your presentation would require a double session, please contact the NELMS office for information. This year, our conference will be held virtually. Approved presenters will have the option to presenter their workshop live or pre-recorded.
