From the looks of it, too much has already been said about teacher survival, as if that was our goal—to survive classroom teaching while following the ever-growing list of mandates and budgeting for essentials like Starbucks and dry erase markers. “Oh, no thanks, I’m going to pass on the thriving thing, prefer merely surviving here,” says no honest person. How do we transition from surviving to thriving—and stay there—in education? The answer might be in doing something really scary like becoming a leader. But, is it really scary? Not if you decide to do what matters to you.
This edWebinar will be of interest to elementary through high school teachers, as well as school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
