Hi all,

As educators, we believe in learning. We believe in life-long learning. We believe that we NEED to learn about learning so that we can help our students learn.

As educators, we are also happy and willing to share what we know.

Wouldn't you like to get PAID to share what you know with fellow Region 3 members?

Click here to find a presentation proposal form. Deadline is December 15th for our Saturday, January 26, 2019 Professional Development workshop. We know you have some great ideas. Please share them with us!

There will be no "Connection" published next week. Have a great holiday weekend!

--Peace
Kathy Rohde
Regional Director
