Sessions will be held each Wednesday in March except March 23rd. Participants completing all 12 instructional hours will be eligible for recognition as a VCEE Certified Economics Educator: K-3 in addition to earning recertification credits.   Participants receive a number of resources for use in the classroom.   Light dinner will be provided.
