“I received so much useful information. I felt so inspired, empowered, valued and pampered!” – M. Cooper, Sunnyvale School District, Chapter 205

Exchange ideas with other paraeducators from around the state. Find out what the latest trends are in other districts and contribute your own ideas to the discussion. Meet up with old friends and make some new ones.
