When I started attending VCEE workshops, I found them full of knowledge and activities directly applicable to the classroom.” Lynchburg College Old Dominion University University of Mary Washington University of Virginia’s College at Wise Virginia Commonwealth University — Dennis Coan, Bedford County public school teacher Virginia Tech “There is no other discipline where you’ve got a partner with you all the time.
