Thoughts from the Chair
I am not sure why I’m in count-down mode this year, but I definitely am! We are now 138 days away from gathering together at this year’s annual conference! Get those papers in, submit a proposal for the returning P12 teacher workshop, or plan to join us to learn from our friends and colleagues. Whatever your reason – I know that it is always a great time with lots to learn from like minded and fun people.
