Their continued activity in the school's Edmodo Support Group is both welcomed and encouraged. Further questions can be asked and answered.

Does our Professional Learning Project sound like something from which your staff and students could benefit?

Teachers quickly gain confidence and knowledge as their individual meetings with Ruth build momentum. There are no "silly" questions.
