Course Description

Looking for inspiration to make your content fresh and exciting but don't know where to start? Tune in as local educators talk about what innovative things they're doing in their classroom or across their building to increase engagement and relevance through developing career mindsets. This series will focus on educators of all types and backgrounds – from elementary to high school, urban districts to rural, across all subjects and roles (classroom teachers, counselors and administrators). With the ongoing need for professional development, but with current limited flexibility or opportunity, these mini PD's will be kept to 30 min. “easy views”. Dates and times will vary.

Guest Host: Erin Bastic, Linda Baas and Erinn Caley, all English 12 teachers from Byron Center

The topic for this session will be: Teaching ELA through a College & Career-focused Lens

Please note: In order to receive SCECHs for this program, attendees MUST complete the online form link shared out during the event. Sign-ups through the PD Hub alone will NOT constitute record of attending.

For school counselors: Unless otherwise noted, all Educator Spotlight Series events will be submitted to the state as credit for Career SCECHs.
