    I would like to develop a better plan for my education as I finish my associate’s degree and progress my education.

    I’d like to go so that I can hear directly from the business leaders of PDX. I rarely get a chance to mingle with them as I teach at Franklin High. I’d hope to meet at least one person who is active in making PDX more globally connected and more multilingual.

    Hello! I hope I am not too late to respond! I just moved here from Michigan, and I am in the market for a job! So it would be great to learn about the upcoming job trends here.
