FREE PD? EdCampSWO This Saturday

Educators, Future Educators and Educational Leaders,


We invite you to consider this awesome homegrown professional learning opportunity.  Please read and forward to your school conference at your discretion.

Why homegrown?  Kristen Wideen, Eric Wideen, Shannon Hazel, James Cowper, Chad Barrette, Doug Sadler, Brian Aspinall and Shawn Dufour are coordinating the day with a larger team including other teachers from the GECDSB, WECDSB, LKDSB!
