TAGteach at the Animal Behavior Management Alliance Conference

TAGteacher Lisa Clifton-Bumpass was a presenter at the Animal Behavior Management Alliance Conference in April and reported that she was
"giddy with delight to see that TAG was a prominent theme - either as the hallmark subject or referenced heavily in the materials."

It is exciting to see TAGteach taking on a life of its own as more and more people are having success with the approach and are spreading the word. We are really proud of the high caliber TAGteachers that are leaders in their field and presenters at these conferences.
