Thoughts from the Chair
This year our division will not be holding the K-12 Teacher Workshop on the Saturday prior to the annual conference. During the one year hiatus, a division sub-committee is actively working to determine what the best format is for the future offerings of this important event. We do plan to hold it again, starting with the 2019 annual conference in Tampa. Questions about this can be directed to Bradley Bowen, chair elect.
