A snapshot of our professional development experience thanks to the Foundation.
At the Get Your Teach On Conference in Charlotte, NC we got to be the students! With a focus on classroom engagement and intentional teaching, we had fun building, creating, thinking, and connecting with teachers from the southeast. Our two-day conference was packed with ways to get the most out of each minute of each day with our kids! Some of our takeaways included morning choice, STEAM, building more culturally rich social studies and empowering students to take ownership of their learning. “Don't do it because it is cute, do it because it is rigorous.” We left asking ourselves: How can we make school a place our students want to come, rather than a place they have to come?
