Are you feeling inspired?

We are! On November 15, George Couros is bringing the positive to the BOCES 2 Educational Services Center. There is still space available for this full-day workshop designed for educators and leaders to help others within their organization not only accept change, but embrace it, to create more powerful learning opportunities.


Speaking of inspiration, we have many inspiring speakers and workshops lined up. We have highlighted a few in this newsletter but, as always, the full catalog can be found at mylearningplan.com.


Best wishes,
