I joined NEWSPA as a new teacher and adviser in 2000, having really no idea what it all entailed. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only did I get a lot of help starting my career as a journalism adviser, but it broadened my network and taught me more about journalism and advising than any book ever could. I’ve been on the board nearly every year since then, even through switching schools and from newspaper to yearbook. I’ve brought my students to every conference and it has been a highlight of the year for my staff. The conference provides real-life education to my students and it’s a great way to celebrate the year.
