laura-square-150x150

I had the pleasure of talking to educator Laura Falk recently on the NGPF podcast. Laura participated this summer in the inaugural NGPF Summer Institute and we met up again at the recent Jump$tart National Educator Conference. Laura has this infectious energy and passion for her work at Fairbanks High School in Milford Center, Ohio. In the podcast, Laura shares how she develops career readiness skills in her students through job shadowing, career exploration and a project-based learning method. She provides awesome examples of the power of developing partnerships in the local business community that go far beyond bringing guest speakers into the classroom. You will walk away with great ideas to bolster your career unit. Enjoy!

Summer Institute 2016 Recap

In late June we hosted our very first Summer Institute for 2.5 days of professional development, networking, and fun in Palo Alto.

What did attendees like about it? Here are a few of their comments we heard:
  • “This has been the best PD in the 20 plus years of my teaching career. Nothing else comes even close.”
  • “Thank you so much for this great opportunity. I always try to be a better teacher for my students and I am taking away so many ideas, concepts, resources and contacts, I know I will be much better next year.”
