  • DLD at CEC 2014, Philadelphia

    Thanks to all who made the DLD at CEC experience such a great one! The Annual Business Meeting was standing room only and we had some very distinguished award winners. The reception included touching tributes from Erica Lembke, Kimberly McDuffie Landrum, John Lloyd, and Doug Fuchs for Tom Scruggs and Margo Mastropieri. The showcase session brought important issues and ideas to the forefront. Many volunteers also contributed their time to take care of the business of the Division. We look forward to another productive year--keep looking at TeachingLD.org for updates and new material!
