Back-to-School season is here, and we’re so excited that many educators are sharing their #inwiththepig spirit and strategies with their colleagues to begin the school year.
Are you interested in hosting a Freckle Professional Development training? This year, we’ve made it even easier to share Freckle with your staff, whether they’re new to Freckle or experienced users.
Here’s your list of ready-to-go Freckle resources:
