TIES (Teacher In-Service and Educational Support) Workshops are offered during the academic year to support teachers of children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
These workshops give teachers innovative ideas and methods to help their students excel. With outstanding guest speakers as workshop presenters, these workshops also allow teachers to develop strategies to meet classroom challenges, build a support network, and exchange ideas.
Paid at the door: $60 per workshop
Payment at least one week before day of workshop: $50 per workshop (savings of $10)
Paid in full for all 6 workshops: $40 per workshop = $240 total (savings of $120)
Seating is limited. To ensure that appropriate accommodations are made for you, please inform us by the Monday of the week of TIES whether you will be joining us for dinner and whether you will need a real-time captionist. Also, please cancel these requests by the Monday of the week of TIES so that we can adjust our accommodations.
