TRAINING & WORKSHOPS

If you’re a newer elementary teacher, join us for a day of learning about your students - their strengths, their challenges, their needs. Teachers will set class goals, learn about classroom routines, and experience ways to foster students’ core competencies.

Teachers will have the opportunity to learn how to access resources through the Henry Grube District Library and explore picture books and novels supporting the curriculum and core competencies.

Bring a class list and a unit idea you would like to develop through collaboration and a guided planning process that considers all learners.

Leave feeling connected, supported and inspired, so you are ready to take on the rest of the year.
