The 2020 Making Connections Conference has been cancelled for this summer.

After much consideration, we have decided to cancel the Making Connections Conference scheduled for June 2-5, 2020.
We realize that there is much uncertainty of how long our schools will be closed to our students. We regret that we will not conduct the 2020 MCC but we will be back in June of 2021! 

The Making Connections Conference (MCC) is THE teacher conference for Mississippi educators.  It is a collaboration effort between Southern Miss College of Education and Psychology and the Southern Regional Educational Service Agency (S-RESA).  


MCC is the opportunity to join teachers from around the state who care deeply about bringing the best innovative and practical teaching strategies to the classroom. This year's conference will provide educators with inspiration, practical skills, and the opportunity to expand professional networks with other educators from around the state.
