About the Session:

CRC is pleased to reunite our previously formed K-1 Facebook group. Have no fear, new members are welcome too! This one time meeting designed for K-1 teachers is a drop-in opportunity to gather together, connect, and learn from each other’s experiences. We encourage you to bring a challenges or problem that you are presently grappling with to pose to the group. Sit back and bask in the flow of inspiring ideas!

Email Kim at ktackaberry@crcpd.ab.ca with any present challenges or ‘trickies’ you would like to chat about at our meeting on Monday, January 24, 2022 from 4:00- 5:00 pm.
