2014 Professional Development Offerings

One of the core principles of writing project work is belief in the power of “teachers teaching teachers.” FVWP has several professional development offerings in Summer of 2014, all of which are facilitated and led by teacher leaders from FVWP. We will continue to add to this schedule as more offerings become available.  Please check back  or contact us if you have questions.  scanlan@uwosh.edu   or  920 424-3325.
