Regional Forums 2015-16

Register now!


The WABE Regional Forums are a popular way to access WABE workshops near your home or district.

These low cost, Saturday workshops are based in solid theory of learning, but are designed to provide “rubber-meets-the-road” strategies you will be able to use tomorrow.

More presentations will be added soon. Keep checking for one in your area.
