The Spark Contributor
For 80 years, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has proudly participated in the National Catholic Educational Association's annual conference—now the largest private-education association gathering in the nation. This year's event is marking a special occasion—the return of the NCEA to St. Louis, MO, where NCEA traces its official beginnings all the way back to 1904.
NCEA participants represent all aspects of Catholic and faith-based education from pre-school, elementary, secondary, adult education, colleges and universities, to local parish pastors, priests, and more. NCEA 2017 is a time to celebrate, to acquire new knowledge, and to renew the spirit.
This year, HMH invites you to attend professional learning sessions led by HMH authors Bill McBride, Doug Becker, and others. See what else is in store at NCEA.
