2017 First CTFLC Professional Development

Last July 7, 2017, CTFLC provided a Professional Development Workshop to its members.  With the leadership of Mrs. Myrna P. Ablana, CTFLC President, they arrived at Skyline Hills Library Branch at 9:30 A.M.


One of the CTFLC goals is to provide professional development to teachers  assisting them in bringing culture and language to students and the community.  This workshop aimed to share best practices and teaching resources to teachers.
