Create an inspiring, humanizing, and student-driven learning experience for your classroom
In Woven Together: How Unpacking Your Teacher Identity Creates a Stronger Learning Community, expert educator Dr. Courtney E. Rose delivers a student-driven approach to teaching that demonstrates how to bring your full self to the classroom.
