Robin Training Class


First and foremost, Brian and Robin, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!  You really provided a new set of eyes for our Instructional Leaders on yesterday. Your professional learning engagement is literally the TALK OF THE TOWN TODAY! Folks have actually thanked me for PD, which in my world, does not happen all that often!!! Even have Administrators asking for professional books/resources for their toolboxes!!! Talk about "use the next day strategies!" Saw it in action for myself today!  Here is how you know that you hit a home run...we held a mini-conference today and the presenters left your session on yesterday and went back and reworked their presentations for today.
