FAQ:  If I went once should I come again?

YES!  Each year the topics and lessons change and as you move up the levels the instructors adjust the topic to fit the correct standard for your level.  As you move up the levels it is also a great way to watch young teachers in action and think about how YOU would present the material when it is your turn.  Parents, it is also a great time to shadow the kids and learn what they need to know for the coming year.  It is also GREAT Quiz Rally prep.
