"PCFR has been an invaluable resource for me, both personally and professionally. By attending the various topical discussions and meetings, virtual or otherwise, I have obtained a great amount of diverse knowledge that I’ve been able to use in my classroom. In addition, I have met individuals from many different professions, and have enjoyed getting to know all members. None of this would have been possible without PCFR, and I look forward to being a part of its future."
