OC for SS Community Digest // 07-29-2022

“What I love about the conference is that there are so many strategies that I can easily implement this school year,” writes New Jersey teacher Andrea Wong. We could not agree more, Andrea! 

We would also love to hear from you! Get ready for our two-day conference by joining the conversations already happening in the OC for SS discussion forum. Take a look at the threads down below, and let your voice be heard.

Want More? 

If so, we have even more Track Talks for you to watch. These short 10 to 15 minute professional development videos are a great way for you to reflect on your practice, learn something new, and be inspired by other teachers.
