JOIN your ITF in Summer Professional Development
Summer registration opens on TODAY May 2nd. With so many choices out there, it is sometimes helpful to see a friendly face during training. I will be presenting several of the Technology PD opportunities for this summer. Below you will find the description of the course, as well as all of the days that I will be presenting that particular course. There are many options outside of these for Summer Technology PD, so if the ones I am presenting don't interest you, don't forget to consider our other courses. I'm so looking forward to seeing you all this summer!
