Michigan ASCD is pleased to introduce Telling Your Story: Pandemic Panels. Over the past year, our team has heard from many educational leaders about how the pandemic has effected their districts, buildings, and personal lives. While these experiences have been incredibly challenging, we also know there are successes that should be celebrated. This is where Telling Your Story comes in.

We are inviting you to join a network of building, district, and teacher leaders. The purpose of this network is to share how your school pivoted in the pandemic; what was successful, and what in hindsight, you would do differently. Take the opportunity to listen to colleagues across the state celebrate their wins, and navigate through challenges. Collaborate with peers and “steal” ideas and strategies for use in your own district, while gaining access to a Google Drive folder stacked with materials, articles, protocols, and more!

The network will meet for one hour the last Friday of every month from March – July 2021. The cost to participate is $75/person. For teams of three or more that would like to participate together, there is a reduced cost of $50/person. This will get you access to a zoom link for each of the monthly meetings, network directory, and all shared materials.

If you are interested in sharing your story as a panelist, please fill out this quick Google Form here. Panelists may participate in the network for no cost in exchange for telling their story.
