  • It's the first time I've listened to a webinar and I think I'm hooked-interesting way to get in a quick learning. I'm so glad to find out today that I can listen to it again and share it. I will definitely be doing both, including sharing it with my childrens' principal in hopes she will share with the teachers.



  • I very much value these learning opportunities - it's great to be able to access some learning in the middle of the day and when education dollars are so scarce.
