2014 SFMC/ BACT Winter Workshop
In the past SFMC has done weekly and monthly meetings for teachers. In talking with our community of teachers, many of them have had other obligations that have arisen so we've decided to do only 1 or 2 Teachers' Circle events a year. The 2013-2014 Teachers' Circle event will happen on January 25th, 2014 at San Francisco State University. We look forward to seeing you then!
Please Click Here to Register! Food and other supplies will be provided for the day but we do ask that you register ahead of time to ensure we have enough supplies.
Saturday, January 25th 2014.
10am - 4pm.
