I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

Webinars – by Next Vista for Learning; “Concerns with the spread of COVID-19 (the coronavirus) have forced school leaders across the world to close their schools and dive into the deep end of the online instruction pool. We hope these free webinars provide ideas, guidance, and encouragement.” (L:G;SA:A)
