So, I can’t wait for Teach Week! Personally, I love conferences. Leaving them, I feel energized and ready to try out new ideas. That’s why I thought having an online conference for teachers would be amazing. Why spend money on travel and hotels when we could have a similar experience online.
I have to tell you that I think the speakers at Teach Week have so many great instructional practices to share. For the business people out there, each day we’ll also have time to talk about business strategies that can help you make a living from teaching.
All in all, I anticipate a great conference and I hope that when you leave it, you’ll feel that you have a toolkit and a community to improve your quality of life and instruction.
