Beyond Silos: Creating a Culture of Collaboration to Empower Educators and Students

March 12, 2025 at 5-6:30 pm
Presented by Casey Watts

Imagine a school where every educator feels empowered to contribute and silos are a thing of the past. By dismantling barriers between special education, general education, and administration, we can create collaborative teams that make every educator and student feel valued, empowered, and essential. Discover how to foster a culture of collaboration, celebrate successes, and ensure each educator’s role is clearly defined, valued, and impactful.
