Annual Spring Gathering

The annual Spring Gathering invites NeWP alumni to connect and celebrate the work of the Nebraska Writing Project. The Gauguin Center on the UNL campus welcomes teachers the first Friday night of May at 6:00 pm. The evening honors the work of NeWP teachers. Poster and technology displays showcase NeWP best practices. Book sales, quilt chances and delicious hors d’oeuvres create an atmosphere of congeniality as members from across the state reconnect. Dr. Brooke, Director, gives an overview of the previous year’s work, upcoming events and the status of the National Project. A supportive administrator is recognized with a certificate of appreciation. The evening’s highlight is the presentation of the Carol MacDaniel Teacher of the Year Award.
