Larry, it was an awesome conference. My teachers left pumped up and with ideas to implement immediately. I have already seen them happening throughout the school! I would love to bring my entire staff as a PD day next year. Also, the food was AMAZING! Great job on what proved to be a reminder of what amazing teachers, administrators and professional development we have in the state of Michigan.
