Adding new regional networks and more educators to existing networks means the Alabama Best Practices Center must increase our supply of adult learning facilitators. This summer, ABPC paired with the University of Alabama RIC to host our first Facilitator Training Institute. Educators from across the state spent three days diving deep into the best methods for leading professional learning.
This summer, ABPC Program Coordinator Emily Strickland has been asking teachers in our statewide educator networks how they’re spending their summer break. We have one more contributor! Renee Dickerson is a third grade teacher (the “Community 3 Lead Learner”) at Pike Road Elementary School. Among other learning activities this summer, she attended the always amazing ISTE Annual Conference.
A+ ABPC Program Coordinator Emily Strickland asked teachers in our statewide networks to let us know how they’ll be spending summer break. Our final volunteer is Laura Buder, a world languages teacher at Vestavia Hills High School, who defines the goal of summer professional learning as doing enough prep to reduce your stress and increase your confidence in the year to come. Thanks to all our volunteers!
A+ ABPC Program Coordinator Emily Strickland is asking educators how they’ll be spending their summer break.

She also shares a tip for new teachers that can help relieve stress.
