I love a good list (the presentations are in)

We have begun the process of finalizing the presentation list. I am appreciative of the reviewers, our Associate members who helped with providing feedback to the presentation proposals we received.

This is the first time YSL has called for presentations. It was fascinating to hear from people from across the globe and to hear what they are doing in their schools. We can look forward to presentations from Hong Kong, Peru, Thailand, Philippines, Australia, UK, Germany and South Africa.

Stay tuned as we finalize the list. Check out the course details page where you can read the abstracts and bios for YSL4 presenters.
