Help EHHP Win FTI Spring Training!

Over Spring Break (March 3-5), TLT will lead a variety of workshops that focus on both pedagogical and technological topics. Each day, you will have the opportunity to attend four different sessions.


Every session counts as a base hit and stipends will be earned as you round each base. Hit a grand slam by attending every session, every day! The more sessions you attend, the more points you earn for EHHP.


The School with the most points will win our Spring Training Trophy and other fantastic prizes!
