‘Teaching the Teachers’ Invites Moms and Dads to Enjoy Fun

Here’s a unique opportunity for moms to enjoy some creative activities. It’s the T3 (Teaching The Teachers) Academy Reception. Join us on Friday, July 27, 11:00-12:30 for the culmination of the 3rd annual T3 Academy. Teachers will read parts of their original works in poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction created during the conference.  Refreshments will be served.

“Entertaining, engaging, inspirational and enlightening” were just of the praise for last year’s readings! Did you miss out? Here’s a link to last year’s reading (video below)
