    I NEED to take this session, but will be out of town on June 21. Please offer the opportunity again.

      Yes—If there is interest, I will be happy to offer a second session. I’m also going to try to tape/screencast the session, and provide notes, which should be helpful.

      Yes—we’re meeting in Jill’s classroom in the Junior High. I think that’s 234, but Marlene will send out confirmation with the correct room number.
