What our participants are saying about 2018 Professional Development sessions at CAT:

“An ‘aha moment’ for me was: Creating an interactive, cohesive lesson at every moment, not isolated to “interactive” times of the lesson. Keeping the engagement of the whole group.”

“I… have been using the strategies in my classroom. I did a CAT workshop some years ago. And I enjoyed using the strategies to keep my students engaged.” (Pre-K Teacher, “Drama Strategies for Classroom Engagement” Participant)
