What is TYHO Game On?

The past couple of years have been unpredictable, challenging, full of tough obstacles and difficult for educators all over the world.

Our team thought about what all of these things remind us of, and couldn’t help but relate it to being inside of a challenging game. Sometimes you’re winning, sometimes you’re down on your luck, sometimes you’re enjoying it, sometimes you wish not to be a part of it, but ultimately you are in it giving it your all for your students!

We absolutely admire your tenacity, drive, commitment, creativity and passion. No matter what has come your way, you have shown up every day and have said “Game-On!”

What People Are Saying

TYHO is by far the most amazing conference I’ve ever attended!! I’ll continue to attend every year! I’ve learned so much from TYHO that I continue to use both inside and out the the classroom each and everyday.

Angela Elder 3rd Grade Teacher

Although I would have loved to meet all the amazing educators in person, it was just as amazing having the privilege to listen to so many knowledgeable educators. I hope to some day be able to attend in person! There are so many unique ideas, so having so many in one place allows us all access to improve our skills. I was able to take something from everyone to improve my students education.

Jacqueline R Skaife SpEd Edcuator, WI

It was a great conference. They had great speakers and gave a lot of great insights that I have been able to incorporate this year. For being online they did a terrific job and I hope one day I can attend in person.
