I Annette C truly have enjoyed the speakers. Each panelist provided their personal experiences to the topics and made the discussions more relatable. – Annette C.

I Lisa Larson really enjoyed the information from the Online Security and Privacy group. This is an area that is practical yet often overlooked in online student trainings. – Lisa L. PVPUSD Counselor

Perfect Lauren B amount of information + great length for the event (not too long but enough time to learn a lot of great tools & info! I’ll definitely share what I learned with my colleagues and school community. – Lauren B.
