Free Saturday Seminars
These seminars provide Hudson Valley educators with hands-on, teacher-led demonstrations of effective strategies for teaching writing and improving literacy instruction. Conferences and writing retreats give teachers opportunities to meet leaders in the field, reflect on their teaching practices, and develop their own writing.
