We are pleased to welcome three new regional directors to our statewide PD staff. Kendra Schenk will be working with our southern members, Monica Hardbarger will be servicing southeastern Oklahoma members and Linda Marshall will be working with the Oklahoma City metro area schools.
Additionally, beginning their second year of fun with the OPSRC statewide regional professional development team are Valerie Johnson, working with our northwest members and Faye Garrison who will be visiting with our northeast Oklahoma members.
