Josh Stumpenhorst: Drawn to Teach

Middle School/High School Workshop

February 27, 2023

Harre Union Ballroom
8:30 AM – 3:00 PM CST (check-in at 8 AM)

Workshop Description:

Our upcoming middle school/high school workshop, Drawn to Teach led by Josh Stumpenhorst will get you moving toward your professional growth goals! Josh will dive into the six key areas of high quality teaching:

  • Relationship Building
  • Motivation
  • Innovation
  • Technology
  • Professional Growth
  • Teaching What Matters

If any of these topics align with your teaching goals, please join us on February 27, 2023! Participants can expect an engaging day of learning with practical and easy to implement strategies.

This is not your typical “sit and get” workshop- participants will be hands-on in the learning throughout the day. This would be an excellent workshop to attend with a teammate, as there will be plenty of time for collaboration to incorporate workshop strategies in your daily teaching plan. Be prepared to push your thinking about how we do the work we do with students in a fun and interactive day of learning!

6 PGPs will be awarded for attending this workshop!
