Dear CTI Community,

We are so grateful for your partnership and participation with us in the important work of preparing new teachers. As my gratefulness abounds, I am remembering beginning teachers at this time who have lost both home and classroom in the recent California wildfires. If you would like to reach out to extend kindness and support to them, you may do that here. Go Fund Me Fire Tragedy for Teachers.
