Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the past school year has been easily the most challenging in memory for veteran teachers, an unfortunate one for first-year teachers, and a stressful one for everyone in the classrooms and schools.

Join veteran middle school teacher and professional development facilitator Charles Fulco, BA '90, as he invites feedback and discussion, and offers remedies to the myriad problems and issues faced by the educational community affected by the pandemic.
