On-going professional-development opportunity: Certainly
our most valuable asset at Cuyamaca College is our constellation
of innovative teachers, both full- and part-time. And our best

strategies in the communication arts, but anyone is welcome who

share your best discoveries. Come with questions and problems.
Come ready to collaborate with your colleagues. Check your schedule
each semester for times and places. Write Tim
Pagaard with suggestions or questions.
