As many of us are either already finished with 2017-18 school for the year, or almost finished, it’s important that take some time to recharge. Teaching and education is challenging and can be very stressful and difficult to get through. This week we will have Kyle Hoopes (@KyleLHoopes), Principal at Grovecrest Elementary School in Alpine School District, leading the discussion on Teacher Well-being.
Please join us tonight at 9 pm MDT as Kyle (@KyleLHoopes) leads the #UTedChat discussion on the topic of the Teacher Well-being! We’d love to have you join the rest of the amazing #UTedChat community and share your great ideas with us because we are truly #BetterTogether.
