The inauguration ceremony for the Great Lakes BATD Region was held on October 30, 2010, facilitated by then President Shelagh Connolly. Our current Chairperson is Kate DeGood, with Secretary Alison Plemmons and treasurer Mary Elizabeth Cheney.
We are a fairly new region composed primarily of Highland and National associates and members, including more experienced teachers as well as many young enthusiastic teachers wanting to see the future of the BATD grow. Many of our members participate in our annual Highland and National Professional Development Weekends that travel around the region in hopes of reaching as many members as possible.
Our mission is to be inclusive and informative in order to facilitate open communication with all members. We are excited for the future of the BATD and have been fortunate to have a lot of participation. We are always looking for new members and for new ideas and feedback from current members. Please feel free to contact us with any comments or questions!
Kate and Alison
