These workshops will focus on the new teacher’s ability to make connections to strengthen relationships. Expertise in classroom management, organization, and analyzing data will be addressed. Recognizing the challenges that face teachers who have learned and taught in a virtual world, we will explore the realities that a different set of skills are necessary for returning to the classroom. Further, the pressures of the first years in teaching will also be addressed as educators engage in additional mini-sessions. (See brochure for a detailed schedule of each day.)
