    “No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship.” No matter how innovative a teacher’s curriculum is, effective learning rarely occurs without first building strong relationships. To help students succeed, we must reach them before they teach them. Come learn how thousands of teachers have tapped the wisdom of AVID professional learning to best serve and inspire our students.

    Speaker: Ricky Ramirez
