Course Description

Looking for inspiration to make your content fresh and exciting but don't know where to start? Tune in as local educators talk about what innovative things they're doing in their classroom or across their building to increase engagement and relevance through developing career mindsets. This series will focus on educators of all types and backgrounds – from elementary to high school, urban districts to rural, across all subjects and roles (classroom teachers, counselors and administrators). With the ongoing need for professional development, but with current limited flexibility or opportunity, these mini PD's will be kept to 30-40 min. “easy views”. Dates and times will vary.

Guest Host: Jacqueline Cherry (ELA teacher) & Ann Couyoumjiana (Career Development Facilitator) South Lyon HS
The American Dream Project: Connecting Content to Careers
