Motivating Teachers – Empowering the Heart
Aired October 2020
ScreenBeam® is honored to be a strategic partner of Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence (BRSE) and host of this webinar series exploring a variety of topics selected for their relevance to fostering school improvement and student achievement. Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence (BRSE) is a non-profit 501©3 organization that has been serving schools across the nation since 2001.
The BRSE one-of-a-kind assessment survey provides actionable insights that can be used as the starting point for school improvement. Their comprehensive approach to helping schools includes professional development and support, best practice sharing, conferences and networking.
Our nation faces a severe teacher shortage and teachers are leaving the profession at alarming rates. The audience will leave this session with strategies to engage their staff in our most important work; developing meaningful relationships with all of our students. In so doing, not only will our best teachers remain in teaching- they will thrive.
