Join Us for Sparks 2020!

We’d like to show you a fun weekend and bring you up to speed on what the Association does and how you can play a more active role in it.  We want to help you make connections with peers from around Virginia while having a blast, too. And did we mention it’s FREE?


Sparks is a worthwhile weekend gathering of educators who have fewer than five years of experience in our public schools.
