What is your favorite part about the GREAT Teachers grant?

"Connecting with other educators in my affinity group during the grant PD sessions has been a wonderful experience. All of the Chico State staff members and group mentors involved with the program have been incredibly supportive and available for guidance whenever I have needed it. These new connections I’ve made have been a great support to me as I am currently teaching full-time and also carrying a full load of graduate-level classes. I can’t even imagine attempting to juggle it all without the support of my colleagues and advisors in this grant program."
