Culturally responsive teaching and school community 

Problem-based learning

Instruction, motivation behavior and connections   

Planning, assessment and curriculum design

Approaches in using school data to inform instruction

The teacher as a leader - organization and systems-thinking approaches in the classroom

Participants will have the opportunity: 

  • To develop and deepen professional relationships 
  • To share resources and collaborative teaching strategies 
  • To explore the use of differing assessment strategies  
  • To examine current themes and trends in K-12 education 
  • To explore career goals
