I can work with you by providing you with effective educational resources and teaching strategies. <br />Like you, my profession requires me to stay up-to-date with the latest information in my field of study. I am able to review and evaluate media and other resources and provide you with my collected information. <br />“As a group work on improving their professional practice, teacher development happens naturally” – Ellen Ullman<br />
