In 2013 we had a wonderful time at the Spring Chapter Event in Richmond on Saturday, March 2 at the Sheraton Hotel. School districts from all over the province, including Haida Gwaii, Prince George, Creston, Peace River South, from the north end of Vancouver Island to the south, Cranbrook, Surrey, Vancouver and many more were represented. We talked about what inspired us as teachers and in turn we were inspired by others.
