Educators learn, teach at convention

More than 8,000 Catholic educators gathered April 2-4 in Houston, Texas, for the annual National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) convention. Among the attendees were Lee Morrison, superintendent of Catholic schools for the Diocese of Davenport, and Chad Steimle, principal of John F. Kennedy Catholic School in Davenport.
Morrison said the NCEA convention is a wonderful opportunity for spiritual renewal and networking  with Catholic ed­u­cators around the United States who are facing similar challenges. He also appreciates being able to attend presentations, workshops and activities designed to help individual Catholic school educators venture out to learn from other educators whose ideas may provide new insights. This year’s conference was three days filled with many blessings, new learning and even some fun, Morrison added.
Steimle served as a presenter for a break-out session this year on marketing.
