What is the MSELA Summit?

The MSELA Summit is a virtual conference hosted each summer by Laura Kebart, M.Ed. and that features interviews and trainings with experienced teachers who believe in achieving an actual harmony between teaching and living.

The topics, ideas, freebies, and action steps you will learn over these five days are all designed to help you get organized, set up your classroom, and teach your middle school ELA students in a realistic way that allows you to enjoy life outside the classroom. 

Every session will encompass the reading, writing, speaking, and listening challenges found in both online learning and traditional learning as we navigate the uncertainties around going back to school this time.

Frequently Asked Questions


Is the MSELA Summit really free? Yes! You can watch all the free session interviews with every speaker when they go live from July 27 to 31, 2020 at no cost. FROM AUGUST 28 - 30 WE WILL RE-RUN THE EVENT AS AN ENCORE PRESENTATION. There are opportunities to upgrade your learning experience, which you'll learn more about after you register.  

Who is the MSELA Summit for? The MSELA Summit is designed for an audience of both new AND experienced Middle School ELA Teachers. These are reading and writing (English / Language Arts) teachers who desire actionable, realistic strategies and ideas to implement not just at the beginning of the school year, but all year long! 

Teachers nationwide are struggling with what teaching will look like as we navigate this pseudo-virtual world in the new 2020 - 2021 school year. No one person has all the answers, but pulling together an incredible team of teachers from all over the country, with a diverse amount of experiences, knowledge, and backgrounds, will provide the BEST professional opportunity to learn, ask questions, and implement new strategies that this new world of learning requires.

If you are ready to start your teaching journey (or if you've been at this a while and need to restart which a fresh perspective from teacher experts who GET IT), then this virtual summit is perfect for you!  

What if I have plans, appointments, or if I just can't view all the sessions at once? We're running the encore presentation of this massive event between Friday, August 28 - Sunday, August 30. This event originally occurred during July, but many teachers weren't aware of it yet or weren't in a space mentally or emotionally to be able to take it all in. That's the reason behind running this even for a very limited time as an encore presentation.

Does it include a Professional Development (PD) certificate? There is an option available for you to get a PD certificate good for 25 hours as a record of your time. This would be a fantastic way to not only learn what you personally want to learn as you start prepping for the new school year, but also as documentation that you can add to your continuing education files!

Hi! I'm your summit host, Laura Kebart, M.Ed.

I serve super-busy Middle School ELA Teachers who choose personal family time over prepping for class.

If you're anything like me, you're feeling anxious about this new world of hybrid teaching we're heading towards. Teachers nationwide are struggling with what teaching will look like as we navigate this pseudo-virtual world in the new 2020 - 2021 school year. No one person has all the answers, but pulling together an incredible team of expert teachers from all over the country, with a diverse amount of experience, knowledge, and backgrounds, will provide the BEST professional opportunity to learn, ask questions, and implement new strategies that our world of learning now requires.

Through my members-only Lesson Plan Community, I provide middle school ELA teachers with bell-to-bell lesson plans & curriculum every day, all year long, for 6th, 7th, & 8th grade so they can teach with joy while living an actual life outside the classroom.
