    Posted by on 28th Jul 2019

    I greatly appreciate the opportunity to review and continue to learn more about literacy instruction. It's great we will have access to the sessions to revisit as needed. The prominent presenters brought important information from their areas of expertise to share. These symposiums continue to provide a wealth of support for all teachers interested in learning and improving their literacy instruction skills.
