    I attended Tom and Dave’s session at the BCTELA Conference 2009, in BC. Absolutely brilliant! I found so many ways to adapt the elementary strategies to my secondary classroom. The first time I’ve felt so inspired and excited to try out new ideas in my own classroom. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and passion. Please come back!!
