We all know that teachers do not truly take the summer off. Between preparing curricula, lesson plans, syllabi, and classrooms we know you stay busy. However, the Reagan Library hopes you can squeeze in a day or two to come visit us in Simi Valley, California for some free workshops we have over the summer. Educators from Ventura, Oxnard, Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, Agoura Hills, Westlake Village, Santa Clarita, Los Angeles, and all over Southern California are invited to attend.

Please join us on July 19, 2016 from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm at the Reagan Library for the second professional development program in this series developed and offered in partnership with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and California Lutheran University.
