Conference 2018

We are very pleased to welcome presenters Marian Small and Beth Olshansky to PETA this year. Every guest will attend a half day session from each presenter, either Marian followed by Beth or vice versa depending on your selection. Marian Small will be speaking on elementary math in the classrooms of 2018 and Beth Olshansky will be speaking on fostering written literacy through art.
