With summer upon us I am excited to share some fun, engaging, and VIRTUAL professional development options for teachers.
Summer Professional Development for Teachers
Today I am sharing five online courses teachers can take this summer to improve their teaching. We know as teachers it is important to grow and challenge ourselves. I love that now-a-days we can do it from the comfort of our very own homes!

This conference, happening July 14th and 15th, is a virtual summit with teachers from all over the U.S. (and maybe even world!) sharing about things that are working well in their classrooms.
What I love about this is it is REAL teachers sharing their REAL experiences!
