Classrooms for the Future Conference, October 2008
“The CFF conference was very well received. I heard so many comments that the attendees got so much from the sessions because the presenters were all CFF coaches. They really did share “best practices” for the next generation of CFF coaches. Also Holly Jobe from PDE and Kyle Peck gave us a great keynote that really set the tone for the rest of the conference. Thanks to everyone who made this a success.”
