Classroom strategies for early career teachers

Beginning teachers can feel overwhelmed with the expectations and unknown requirements of teaching. During this workshop, we will touch on conflict resolution strategies, self-care, and the pros and cons of the different report card formats. There will also be time provided for questions.
