At its core, the Summit invites all of us to connect with the remarkable possibility and passion of teaching.
During the weekend of the College Football Playoff National Championship, the CFP Foundation hosts the Extra Yard for Teachers Summit as a way to inspire and empower teachers in the host city. The event includes two sessions filled with stimulating speakers. Past speakers include Condoleezza Rice, former US Secretary of State; Charles Best, founder of DonorsChoose.org; Joey Galloway, College Football ESPN Analyst, and many more.
The morning speaker session will be followed by an afternoon of activities at our home base, the Teachers' Lounge, to enjoy more inspirational speakers, energizing activations, refreshments and entertainment. The Teachers' Lounge is open to ALL teachers - just show a faculty/staff ID!
On January 11, 2017, the Extra Yard for Teachers Legacy Summit - Dallas will take place and continue the celebration of teachers.
