On April 25th and 26th, many of Wallowa Elementary's teachers and principal attended an Oregon Response to Instruction and Intervention Annual Conference in Eugene, Oregon.  This action packed two day conference offered keynote speeches from nationally recognized educators, Dr. Anita Archer and Dr. Kevin Feldman.  Break out sessions filled the majority of the two days so teachers could pick and choose what best matched their professional learning goals.  

All of the sessions and keynote speeches discussed a variety of topics ranging from math and reading to behavior.  The focus of the entire conference was Reponse to Instruction and Intervention (RTIi).  Wallowa Elementary School recieved a grant last spring to help implement RTIi.  The grant helps pay for the coaching, implementation, and conferences the teachers attend.
