Collective Wisdom Collaboration Webinar Series

Hosted by New Hampshire Association of Special Education Administrators, New Hampshire School Counselors Association, & Brain- and Body- Aligned Responsive Systems of Excellence

 

Join us for the first ever collaboration between the NHASEA, NHSCA, & BBARS of Excellence! This collaboration comes forward with the goal of providing an opportunity to share in the collective wisdom of these organizations and you, our NH, on-the-ground general educators, special educators, and school counselors. A common experience of professionals working in schools is to feel siloed; siloed within our schools and within our roles. With this webinar series, we are breaking down that structure and providing a platform of collaboration that utilizes the collective wisdom to provide clarity to manage some of the most challenging and prevailing situations you encounter.

This professional development opportunity consists of a series of five, live webinars via Zoom that will each begin with a content-based presentation and will be followed by a case study presentation and collaborative analysis. Following each webinar, participants will receive the recording, presentation slides, a summary of the case study, and recommendations and resources with applicable links.

Facilitators:

Katie Pagnotta - BBARS of Excellence

Beth Corkum  - NHSCA

Jane Bergeron - NHASEA
