TORONTO, April 27 /CNW/ - Three hundred elementary school teachers will be attending a unique day of professional learning on Friday, April 30, 2010 at Queen's University's Duncan McArthur Hall in Kingston.
The 'Working Together: Achievement for All' conference is a collaborative joint venture involving representatives from the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (Limestone Local), the Limestone District School Board and Queen's Faculty of Education.
