District 158 Professional Development Workshops: Sign-up Now!

District 158 has released their professional development workshops for the summer.

The workshops are free to attend; however, no stipends are granted. I highly recommend the CRISS training on August 3-4. I am CRISS trained, and it was very beneficial to utilize those strategies in the classroom. If you are interested in any of the workshops, please return the form to me by Monday, and I will register you. (The forms are in your mailbox.)
