Friends, many of you have messaged me asking for more information about why I keep sharing so much about Advancement Courses, and I’m thrilled to tell you that I am a part of Advancement Courses teACh Team!
The teACh Team consists of three rock-star educators (and me!) who have been working with the awesome team at Advancement Courses for the past year. We connect regularly to talk about issues relevant to busy educators, and each of us can speak to the fact that the professional development options that Advancement Courses offers is top-notch.
teACh Team Kick-Off
Here’s the Facebook Live we did to officially kick off our involvement on the team.
We talked about how to use the right mindset in order to balance all of the responsibilities of being an educator. It’s a must-see! We had an absolute blast.
Catch the teACh Team’s Next Event
We have a super busy summer planned, friends.
Yes, we know that summertime is ideal for educators to get a little well-deserved R & R, and we want you to rest, relax, and get rejuvenated, but we also know that these few months before the new school year begins is the ideal time to sneak in some professional development.
Here’s what we have planned that you do not want to miss:
- July 10: [Amy takes over the Advancement Courses Instagram feed] Follow along for a behind-the-scenes look at what busy teachers do on their summer break, and get a first-hand look at the 2-credit course that Amy is taking.
- July 15: [Kayla and Amy will be on Instagram LIVE at 8pm ET] We will be chatting about how teachers can make the most of their summer break and we will kick off an awesome Instagram giveaway–you must join us to learn more!)
- July 17: [Kayse and Amy will be LIVE on Kayse’s Podcast at noon ET] We will be talking about self-care for teachers.
- July 22: [Todd and Amy will be LIVE on Facebook at 7pm ET] We’ll be chatting about the 1- and 2- credit Advancement Courses that they took.
