Special Issues Luncheon

Be sure to sign up for the Issues Update Luncheon on Tuesday.

We will hear from State Representative Ron Kresha. Rep. Kresha has been involved in education since 1994. He is a former coach, teacher, curriculum coordinator and technology specialists. In 2000, he co-founded Atomic Learning in Little Falls which specialized in online professional development internationally. Ron has been active in preparing and developing students to be successful in school and post-high school. As a curriculum coordinator, he focused efforts on making sure early learners were successful and that students have a stable, loving learning environment. Kresha was elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives in 2012 and has been an outspoken supporter of early learners.
