Elementary “Tech Coach” -Are you interested in Information Technology use in the classroom??
If you are, even if you aren’t “Tech savvy”, I am looking for your help. I am looking for 1 to 2 interested classroom Teachers in each school to be a “Tech Coach” in your school. You will have the opportunity to have additional In-Service with other “Tech Coaches” and be first to learn about new technology. Your training will provide you with the skills and knowledge that you can bring back to your school and assist your colleagues with the use of technology as a learning tool. Sign Up
Next year we are looking to expand our partnership with POPFASD to provide opportunities for classroom teachers and schools to participate in workshops intended to increase educators’ capacity to meet the educational needs of students with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) through FASD-informed practice that benefits all students.
Currently we are considering Sept 21, October 5th, or February 2019 as potential dates that POPFASD can provide in-service to your school in person or online, for a full or half day sessions. The topics vary and can be customized to the specific needs of your school.
If you are a school interested in hosting a workshop for staff, please reply to Sheri Montgomery, District Inclusion Mentor Teacher at email@example.com.
