December 8: Winter Working Dinner
This winter, we hosted a working dinner for the teachers we fund, other teachers interested in the initiative, and community partners. We focused the evening on sharing NEMI GLSI updates, getting everyone acquainted with the new website, and having some time to work on projects. With rather small numbers, the atmosphere was perfect for brainstorming and idea sharing. So from all we can tell, everyone found the time both pleasant and useful.
