Great PD on the go!

With her blend of expertise and inspiration, Carla Gull encourages teachers everywhere to infuse a spirit of wonder into their programs. Great ideas for provocations, nature walks and book picks! Perfect length for the drive to school and I always arrive with a new idea to share with my students to extend their learning!
