GROWING OUR COMMON CORE on Saturday, September 27, 2014.

Featured topics: Curriculum Selections, Annual Planting Plan, Poetry Slam, Seeds and Nuts, Plant Give Aways.

Comments about the workshop:  I really enjoyed the workshop; it made me totally relax and decompress after a crazy week.  I made some great contacts, learned about some new resources, and came away with some curriculum ideas that I could actually teach next week!  I've been to more than my fair share of trainings and workshops, and believe me, it's not very often that I can claim all these benefits about one three-hour workshop!  So thanks again for coordinating it and I look forward to seeing you again.
