2019 PAEOP Fall Workshop
What a spectacular day for the 140 or so ladies and gentlemen who attended the Fall workshop held at the Pennsylvania Department of Education building on November 1, 2019. Attendees began the day with light refreshments and a brief welcome by the PA Secretary of Education, Mr. Pedro Rivera. Attendees with job alike roles were then grouped together for guided tours of the various departments in which PDE provides services or assistance to them.
Following the tours at PDE, attendees took a short walk on the beautiful sunny and brisk day to the historic state capitol building. Some groups began with a delicious boxed lunch, while others toured the breathtaking capitol building. The reverse was scheduled for groups who started the visit by touring and then had their lunch immediately following the tour.
After, a group photo was taken on the steps of the capitol's beautiful veranda. Once again, after a short walk, all of the attendees returned to the PDE building for a panel discussion, which included a question and answer session with several members of PDE leadership.
This very unique opportunity to view the inner-workings of the state government was most certainly a day enjoyed by all who attended.
