"The ELP was extremely helpful to me as a PL Supervisor in a new district. Not only was the program based on sound PL practices from the National LF organization, but it was also differentiated for the participants’ needs. I was able to network with other professionals and receive sound advice and assistance with the use of protocols based on the work I was actually doing and grow professionally!"
