In response to COVID-19, The Education Fund offered free Distance Learning INTERACTIVE webinars to help teachers transition from the classroom to teaching remotely. More than 35,000 teachers participated.
NEW 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR INTERACTIVE WEBINARS
Our first offering of the school year is an important 2-Part Series led by Michelle Singh, an educator and trainer with specialties in English education, curriculum and instruction, gifted education, and educational technology. During her 15-year tenure with M-DCPS, Michelle was a teacher of the gifted, teacher-leader, department chairperson, District Curriculum Specialist, and District Technology Trainer.

Finally, teachers will see how to address the social and emotional learning of students with student-to-student and teacher-to-teacher connection and communication.
