Workshop a Go-Go a Success!
The conference facility in Glenwood, MN was the perfect location for this first ever regional conference on April 27.
Great sessions, door prizes, being read to at lunch by author Deb Mercier–all came together to serve our teachers in Central Minnesota.
Resources from presenters are already available. The site also has treasures from previous years’ conferences.
To see what we did, here’s the color flyer.
Always available: MCTE Events and Conference Resources!
