About this Network:

This continuing network will bring you together with other Long Island educators for peer support and critical colleagueship. You will engage in text study as well as read a book (of the network members’ choice) around designing innovative educational experiences. You will share and get feedback on new ideas you are developing as well as challenges you are confronting. This network is a great opportunity for you to engage in text study, to build collegial relationships, and to learn about new resources and the work of your fellow educators. You will identify and work towards a professional goal as well as contribute to the field by designing and/or implementing innovative strategies in your own setting or in the larger community.

Additional Information:

  • This network is open to new members but requires an initial conversation with the facilitator.
  • This network is designed for congregational school educators.
