Virginia Leadership Institute for Professional Developers in SIM™ on June 18 - 20, 2019 in Harrisonburg, VA

I attended the Virginia Leadership Institute for Professional Developers in SIM™ on June 18 - 20, 2019 in Harrisonburg, VA with Helen Barrier, Dana McCaleb, Whitney Miller, and Jocelyn Washburn. During VaLI, I was able to connect with other apprentices and further build my understanding and implementation of partnership principles, KUCRL, and the effectiveness of SIM practices. Additionally, I was equipped as a literacy leader to use SIM as an agent of change in my school system. As a Learning Strategies Professional Developer, I am excited to add the the flexibility of being a Professional Developer in CERs to what I can offer to the school divisions I serve.
