TPS Metro State returned to the state of Washington in early March; this time to the small city of Longview. The workshop, facilitated by TPS Metro State Director Peggy O’Neill-Jones and TPS Metro State consultant Cindy Stout, focused on the subjects of Native Americans and the expedition of Lewis & Clark.

This was our second foray into the beautiful state of Washington. Check out our blog post from our initial visit to Vancouver and Educational Service District 112.
