    Am I not looking in the right place? Conference handouts are not working on any of the pages…? Am I the only one having this problem? I’ve already tried Jon’s and Matt’s pages as well…

      Hi Jillian – did you click on the name of the conference, and go through to the page specifically for I Teach K? If you continue to have trouble, let me know, and I can e-mail you the PDF!
