We extend a thank you to those who were willing to present their ideas and strategies with their colleagues. We hope you enjoyed your time in the beautiful San Francisco area and left energized to continue empowering your students. We hope to see you next year!

In this session you will learn strategies for increasing study team success and individual achievement in your CPM classroom using goal setting.
