Annual workshops reach educators at all levels.

These day-long workshops have benefited area educators for more than a decade. They are designed to bring cutting-edge research that models best practices for teachers, literacy coaches, and administrators to practicing educators in the community. Each year, practicing K-12 administrators and teachers provide input on the theme and keynote speakers invited to sponsored events.
