It is not often that a diocese invites a guest speaker who reaches EVERY participant: teacher, administrator, and DRE! We were blessed to welcome Raul to an event in the Archdiocese of Hartford that was open to Catholic school educators as well as parish catechetical leaders. Raul’s experiences and expertise drew everyone into the engaging discussions, but his passion, wit, and genuine mission to advance learning for those children in most need, left everyone wanting to hear more! Putting resources in the hands of educators and expanding their understanding of how exceptional students learn, left them with a solid foundation upon which to build. Thank you Raul! You’re welcome back any time!--Valerie Mara, Assistant Superintendent of Academics, Archdiocese of Hartford.
