My sincere and heartfelt thanks to Laurie McCullough and the great people of VASCD for taking a chance on me today for a full-day teacher training at Shenandoah University. I hope folks you enjoyed the day as much as I did, and I thank you so much for taking the time out of your schedules to come recharge our teacher practices and change the game.
See the smiles? What a perfect way to wrap up a full day of game-changing teacher PD from @VASCD. Thank you so much for having me, #VASCD18! Stay in touch and hit me up at any time! Can’t wait to hear all the incredible ways that you’ll change the game in your classrooms!!! pic.twitter.com/jFRLRTWLjC
