Hey Leslie, We look forward to working with you in Montana. Our Family Learning Weekend is set for May 31-June 2nd, 2024. Hope to see you there!

Hello Leslie.
I got the great honor in meeting both you and your guide dog recently in Twin Falls. You have made a great impact on me especially with what you said during the last discussion panel. Thank you for taking your time to come to our conference. I also liked that you brought the Monarch. I hope to learn more from you in the future.
