Embedded Technology PD Coming...

Want to learn something techy but don't have time to attend after school PD? Starting this week, I will offer Technology Lunch & Learns during the school day. Grab your lunch, join me for 10-15 minutes, and walk away with something you can use in your classroom. I will have something techy for you and I might have dessert! See schedule below for upcoming Lunch & Learns!
