A message from the MODSEA President

The 60th annual MODSEA conference will be held on Wednesday, February 25th at Monsanto in Creve Coeur beginning at 8:30am.  Please join us for an excellent opportunity to network with both classroom and behind-the-wheel instructors from across the state.  We are planning another informative session.  Be sure to get this on your calendar and speak to your administration about attending our conference this year.  We have changed our date to a week earlier this year to try to accommodate our spring coaches and to schedule our special guest Andy Pilgrim, a 5 time Sports car Racing Champion.  He will be presenting a parent component to align with the programs we already teach to help us in the classroom.

Along with other presenters, this looks to be another very informative meeting.  Find a way to attend this year’s conference.  This conference seems to ignite enthusiasm each year and you’ll be surprised on the new things you will be able to add to your classroom at the conclusion of our sessions.
