Event Details

Connect, Collaborate, Celebrate

You are invited to a complimentary Network Meeting to connect with colleagues from across the province. This one day meeting is provided to allow educators to share experiences, successes, and challenges with literacy in the classroom and with LLI intervention. During this highly interactive day of sharing you will hear peer to peer stories of implementation strategies, have the opportunity to discuss shared experiences, and brainstorm strategies to provide students with improved opportunities for literacy success.

Who Should Attend the LLI Network Meeting?
