There have been few things in life that really impress me. But I must admit that the Teach Them Diligently Convention this year in Washington, DC has done just that! From the beautiful surroundings of the Gaylord Hotel and Resort, the perfect weather, the outstanding speakers and the awesome children’s program, I will say that I am in awe.
