Wow. What a summer we had. Seth and I saw so many educators through our virtual training and enjoyed engaging in conversation in every session. As we push forward into August 2020, we continue to offer virtual opportunities. Check out those events! We will be adding additional experiences so keep a lookout. We look forward to continuing to work with our LEAs (YOU) and continue to provide high quality PD.
