Yes, you can add these expenses as Job-Related Expenses.  The Educator Expense Deduction is a separate credit that you will also take as a teacher for the additional education materials you provide for your classes up to $250.

1.  Go to Federal.

2.  Go to Deductions and Credits.

3.  Select Employment Expenses (make sure you've opened the entire list of Deductions and Credits).

4.  Choose Job-related Expenses for W-2 Employment.

5.  You will go through several areas of the section and will reach a page titled, Any Other Expenses

6.  This page has Education Expenses where you can enter expenses for your teacher conference.
