 Teachers, it's time to make change.


Telling Our Stories/Raising Our Voices: From Anecdote to Action

June 27-29, 2017   9am – 3pm each day

EMU Student Center, Room 300


In this workshop, we’ll help you become part of the school reform conversation as you learn how to develop your personal stories into a more public narrative, starting from anecdotes and building toward an action plan.  By the end of day 3, you should have an action plan to take back to your classroom and school.
