Annie Wright Schools are proud to host the Pacific Northwest Association of Independent Schools (PNAIS) Fall Educators Conference on Friday, Oct. 12.
More than 900 educators from independent schools throughout the Northwest will visit the Tacoma-based campus for the daylong even.
“We welcome our fellow educators to the Annie Wright campus and our community,” said Christian G. Sullivan, Head of Annie Wright Schools. “It is an honor to showcase Annie Wright and Tacoma as we convene for this important event.”
This year’s event draws in national and regional speakers presenting on the theme, Risk + Failure = Growth: Developing the Resilient Learner and Educator.
Keynote speakers include Kathryn Schulz, author of Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error; and Rob Evans, Ed.D., presenting on Helping Parents Face Risk and Foster Resilience and Getting to No: From Congeniality to True Collegiality.
On- and off-site parking and shuttles have been organized for attendees, but the school does anticipate a large volume of cars in the neighborhood that day.

Annie Wright Schools are two schools on the one campus: a day school for boys and girls in preschool through grade 8, and an all-girls day and boarding school in grades 9 through 12. Learn more at www.aw.org.
