Required Pre-conference Work

  • Complete the linked survey to help us tailor the program to your needs by July 25th.

  • Double check the teaching assignments we have received from your schools to help me ensure we have an instructional coach working with you who can be most helpful. Please pay careful attention to grade level too as middle school humanities (for example) is a bit different from upper school English and science is far less specific than biology or chemistry. The link to my spreadsheet is here. You can simply email me with any corrections.
