Message from the Director

Welcome back! Hope everyone had a great and relaxing holiday. It's 2017!


I hope you find some time to join us for our new endeavor of offering technology training this semester. I have had this goal for sometime, but we are finally going to make it happen, thanks to Penni joining us this year. Feel free to let us know what you need help with concerning technology in the classroom. We have based this month's sessions around areas in which we get the most phone calls, tickets, and emails. So check out the lists of dates and sessions and we hope to see you soon.


Hope you have a great January! Happy New Year!

Annette
