This week, we've invited @AngelaMaiers to our weekly Parent-Teacher Chat to help provide us the very best strategies in raising self-esteem for students everywhere. Angela's life path has always been about teaching and communication. Her twenty years as an educator and her passionate pursuit of literacy and learning, gave her a healthy dose of courage and skills that have led to a variety of wonderful experiences, including classroom and University teaching, instructional coaching, research, writing, publishing, corporate training, and starting my own business. More on Angela Maiers can be found on her website here and in her TEDxDesMoines talk below.
Also invited to this discussion is 2012 Blue Ribbon School Principal Tony Sinanis, whose school (Cantiague Elementary), employs multiple "bucket-filling" opportunities for its learning community. We'll hear from Tony and others on applying these strategies at home and at school.
Please join us on Wednesday night, 9/19 at 9EDT/6PST. Together we'll create a gDOC school newsletter resource for educators & parents on student self-esteem.
