I’m looking forward to sharing several presentations at this year’s Bucks-Lehigh EduSummit in Center Valley, PA (@ Southern Lehigh High School). EduSummit is a collaboration between Quakertown Community School District, Southern Lehigh School District, Salisbury Township School District, Palisades School District and the Bucks County Intermediate Unit. It’s not too late to REGISTER for this FREE professional learning opportunity taking place on Monday, August 11 and Tuesday, August 12! There will be some awesome keynote presentations and lots of educators sharing and learning from each other! This year’s hashtag for the Bucks-Lehigh EduSummit is #bles14. Follow it!
I’m excited to be a part of three presentations:
