A Great Finish to our Starting a Business Workshops
Thank you once again to the lovely Kosta Parthimos for his tireless work and contribution to the SAB teaching community. The Teacher Orientation - Part 2 workshop covered many key areas that are currently being developed by Kosta, including contributions by many other vocational teachers. We hope to see more of the Starting a Business community at our future workshops.
Stay tuned for our next workshop, How to Build an Educational Website - Part 2 coming soon!
Two Very Successful Workshops to Start 2017
A very big thank you to Kosta Parthimos for his amazing workshop on the Starting a Business Program. Current and new teachers alike benefited from the information shared by Kosta. We look forward to another workshop to continue the information greatly needed in this area. For highlights, please view our archives here.
Another great workshop, thanks to the forever knowledgeable Mark Newton. His insight into the New Secretarial Program helped teachers appreciate the upcoming changes and adjustments currently underway. We valued all the information shared by Mark as well as the collaboration of all teachers who attended. For highlights, please view our archives here.
Thank you for the fantastic turnout!
What a great experience to give my first QBTA workshop: How to Build an Educational Website in 30 Minutes.
A big 'thank you' to all the participants and equally important, the QBTA gang for their tireless work!
A big hug to Maria Caldarella, Vice Principal at SHADD Health and Business Center; her support and input was integral and greatly valued. Also, a big thanks to Shawn McDonald for being our honorary photographer and Jack-of-All-Trades. :)
On a personal note, it is so unbelievable to have such a diverse group of teachers get together and collaborate as we did last night. For me, it is why I am in education and QBTA will strive to create more opportunities for us to share and learn from each other. Remember, we need your input!
