Summer School: 3 Considerations for Boosting Teacher Engagement
Summer school gives teachers the unique opportunity to focus on “teacher self-care.” Trying out things in summer school we didn’t get a chance to teach during the regular school year is one way to invest in “teacher self-care.” When we better understand what works in our classroom, we can plan accordingly and make our year ahead the best it can be.
In this session, we will examine ways to make the summer school experience more meaningful, motivating, and professionally fulfilling for teachers.
