Reconnecting to Your Passion to Improve Your Practice

60 Minutes

As we consider the last 15 months in education, what have we or can we learn from that process for personal and professional growth to effectively drive student growth and outcomes? As we begin settling into the new normal, balancing today’s pressing concerns with the needs of tomorrow will be a constant challenge. In the face of competing priorities, we can lead and teach in a meaningful way that creates a supportive culture and results.

During this edWebinar we will focus on reaffirming, refocusing, and even challenging your thinking by:

  • Rekindling strong and productive relationships with those you serve
  • Using skills and strategies that move beyond coping and lead to growth
  • Capacity planning within your district and school and more!

This edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, and district curriculum coordinators.
