My experience at AAEE was the highlight of my year. Not only did I get to learn more about my role as the Human Resources Director of the Duchesne County School District, but I was able to expand my professional network by associating with HR and AAEE leaders from across the country. I was able to gain a new perspective regarding the challenges other school districts face in hiring and retaining high quality teachers. I was also able to meet with educational leaders from states where there are a surplus of teachers. This will allow us to focus our recruiting efforts. The most valuable portion of the conference for me was the Card Exchange, where I was able to network and find new resources. I enjoyed the time I was able to spend with the Career Center representatives from Utah’s delegation. We were able to spend time together throughout the day and evenings which has given me the confidence to call on them as needs arise. They are fabulous people and I value my relationships with them. I have enjoyed continuing the friendships that I developed at the conference. Thank you to the AAEE for the wonderful experience. I plan to make this conference an annual event.
