ILTPP has made some big changes recently and we're really excited to share them with you!

September tech-eNews & Updates
 summer is over and school is back in session! We hope you are still enjoying the excitement of a new school year and make this the best year yet!
Coordinator's Corner

Welcome back to those of you who were able to enjoy a break this summer! I am so excited to introduce our newest staff member, Hope Hardin-Borbely. Hope joins ILTPP as our Marketing Specialist, and brings with her an extensive background in design and marketing - we are so happy to have her on board! Our first big project with Hope on board was redesigning the ILTPP logo. Don't you love it?! 

We also launched our new professional development offerings with the kick-off webinar series that started this Tuesday. Don't worry you still have time to sign up! More details below on that. 

ILTPP is growing and I am really excited for what's to come this school year. There is a lot in the works so make sure you keep checking our emails and bookmark our website!

Cheers to a fabulous school year!
