February 18: ConnCAT Public Education Forum | 11:30 – 1:30
ConnCAT is taking a similar approach to our TFA House Meetings. They wish to surface issues and create a plan of action. If we are to truly live into the community model, we should support organizations whose values and goals are aligned to our own. Please join us for two hours of reflection and critical thinking that will strengthen our relationship with dedicated members of the education community.
