Doc Holliday presents: Get Off the Sidelines and Back in the Game

American public education has just experienced one of its most traumatic and challenging years ever.  Many of our students have studied in isolation.  Far too many of our teachers have been forced to adhere to the demands of politicians instead of seasoned educators as to what is in the best interest of providing a quality education for children.  This virtual seminar will share cutting edge ideas that generate careful thought from even our most reluctant learners as we hit the ground running in the Fall.  Teachers must be able to begin a new school year with a new sense of urgency and new common-sense tools in their toolbox.  I choose to use the metaphor of “Huddling Up” which happens often when athletic teams come together to talk over adjustments or different strategies to be successful during competitive games.  Educators have been relegated to the sidelines over the past year with little opportunity to offer their professional impute and advice.   The time is now to kick our ideas into gear and to “Get off the Sidelines and Back into the Game”.
