Adding Tools to Your Toolbelt

Continuous Improvement Conference is just around the corner, and is a wonderful opportunity to sharpen our teaching tools! Don't forget to bring your device to the conference (laptop or iPad) so you can take notes and follow along with the presenters. This year Camacho Cosmos will only attend the conference on Monday. We will be back on campus on Tuesday learning from our Discovery Education coaches. I hope you enjoy your day of learning and I'll see you at the conference!
