To help you recharge and gear up for next school year, we are excited to invite you to Scholastic for a free, four day event featuring 15 professional development seminars (and exclusive teacher discounts in the Scholastic Store!).
Teachers, if you are in the NYC area August 18-21, mark your calendars and register for Teacher Week @ Scholastic at www.scholastic.com/teacherweek. (Be sure to include an email address you'll have access to this summer so we can send you updates!)
