Morning Mr. Valadez!

I was considering enrollment, but need to know if attending the second session only would still be valuable and/or would stall the progress of the group.  The first session was not an option for me....  Thank you!  Jeanne

It is always an adventure. Thank you for letting me be apart of each one. Science is in such a need for literacy to be the cornerstone for educators and students alike.
This is irregardless of age, grade or gender. Once a person is literate in the language of discovery and the adventures, what doors could be opened. Imagine the levels of achievement that are possible when learning is fun. The rigor becomes the adventure as new worlds are discovered. Learning becomes a life long pursuit.

Good to hear from you I'm doing well, not sure about my school tho. How about you? I think I will unable to attend the institute as I will be starting summer school myself. I was accepted into the aspiring admin program and will start on June 25. What are the dates for the institute?
