37 Links to Summer Professional Development Opportunities

There are so many educational opportunities for teachers during the summer months. Some can be offered for free, and other charge fees. I'm going to mix it up a bit, because I know there are school districts which will reimburse their teachers if there is a fee. In my case, I'm on my own if I decide to pay for any workshops or classes this summer. NOTE: Some events could not be listed because the date to apply has already passed.
