Your Mission,

should you choose to accept it is to challenge and motivate the students you work with every day!

Breakout Session Schedule

Come join us in Sarasota for the 43rd Annual Conference on June 13 and 14th and accept this challenging mission.  Keynote speakers will include Dorina Sackman, Florida Teacher of The Year, and Jack Berckemeyer, nationally recognized consultant and author.  Yes, Jack is back by popular request and demand.

We are seeking new information to share on such topics as common core applications for the classroom, STEM sessions highlighting science and math strategies, lesson study, transition to middle and high school and secrets for working with over age middle school students. If you have a program that exemplifies these areas or other challenging and motivating techniques, please apply to present and share your “secrets” of success.  FLMS will “avow” your knowledge of your actions! 

Conference highlights will include a Friday night secret agent social, with an undercover theme of “I DON’T GIVE A VAM, “ where you are encouraged to wear your favorite disguise or your team/school T-shirt, bountiful baskets, door prizes, the FLMS bookstore and various exhibitors.

The Florida League of Middle Schools was founded in 1972 by a group of individuals who were designing, teaching and working in a new kind of school called a "middle school".  The association is designed for individuals and institutions dedicated to the cause of quality middle level education for grades 5-9.

The mission of the Florida League of Middle Schools is to improve education for middle grades students in the state of Florida.

        The mission of the League is accomplished by:

  • Acting as an advocate for middle grade students and education in Florida.
  • Facilitating curriculum improvement and in-service education.
  • Being a clearinghouse for middle level ideas, materials, and personnel.
  • Coordinating statewide efforts in the School Improvement Process in Florida.
  • Securing support for middle level education from groups and agencies.
  • Representing middle schools in public discussions of education issues.
  • Establishing and supporting regional affiliates of the Florida League of Middle Schools
