Elementary Classroom Preparation for Fall of 2020-Teaching After Covid-19

Were you in shock back in March when all of a sudden you had to teach your curriculum completely on-line? Are you going back to school “in person”, “on-line” or will it be a hybrid of both? Join us on July 29th for a STEMinar on how some elementary educators might spend their summer preparing for the beginning of the new school year in September, when we are really unsure if learning will take place online or in person. Summer is a great time to catch up on Professional Development, try out new things and make modifications to your curriculum to be prepared for the Fall of 2020.
