Great ready to use techniques in class. I liked how there wasn’t the usual “talk to your partner about how you do things in your school.”

Best PD I’ve ever been to – where I have so many practical things to take away with me and they were used during the course so we could see how it worked.

Linked directly to my PLC at school. Glen was great at making sure that even though I was only 1 of 2 primary teachers, I could apply what I was seeing into my class / how to modify the strategies to suit.
