All classes will be held as in person with teachers Zooming all classes for those participating virtually.  Attending in person is of course preferable but we are hoping this option will make training accessible to more teachers.

For those participating virtually, please note that the same 100% attendance and professionalism standards apply as for in person attendance. Ensure you are in a space with no background noise, free from distractions, and not traveling during your sessions. (Yes, this has happened!)
