TASL is an amazing organization. But it is the people who dedicate their time and energy that make it great. We at TASL Talks want to highlight our leaders and express our gratitude for their commitment to our wonderful profession. We will be featuring each member of leadership throughout the remainder of the year. I’m excited to share with you more about our 2020 Professional Development Chair Katie Capshaw.
