Connect, share stories, ask questions, and troubleshoot your first few years in the classroom. Topics to be discussed could include: connecting at the start of the year, classroom routines, parent communication, teams, finding something that centers you, and now how to do all of this in a pandemic! We will work together to debrief and discuss common speed bumps, obstacles and mistakes we had in the first few years of teaching. Hopefully, you can come away with tips, and answers to your questions so that your years can move smoother and keep you in the game longer.

What are Educator Forums?

Educator Forums are professional development events for educators of similar positions or responsibilities to explore new or best practices in their field. Forums provide an opportunity for educators to engage with peers, build new understandings from prior knowledge, and reflect on past practices.
