Professional Development Opportunities


MCATFL is committed to providing educators with continued opportunities to connect, learn, and grow throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We have developed Thursday Share Sessions to offer our members a forum for continued collaboration and support. Each month we'll offer a brief presentation followed by a discussion of that session's topic. We hope you'll join us for these monthly gatherings!
