I am proud to be a part of a district that takes their literacy training very serious and also taps into their own experts, while focusing on what is best for all kids. Since this is open to the public but has not been advertised much, I thought I would use my blog to offer more people this opportunity because I think it is going to be amazing and is one of the cheapest professional development opportunities I have seen in a long while. As part of working for the district, I do get to be the keynote speaker for it and also head a few of the training sessions.
