Additional Schedule Information

This course is being offered to CIM Suzuki Pedagogy Students. Abbey Hansen ran this course a few weeks ago and she told me to have the CIM students register for the course on-line but pay me $50 directly. The $100 fee is for non CIM students who can also pay me directly. I will send payment for the books needed to the SAA through PayPal and the participants mailing addresses. I am registered to take to meet with Christie Felsing to learn about how to teach ECC on-line. Kimberly
