Dr. Tammy Pawloski Update and Debrief

We had a great day #2! Teams have received information on:

Strategy #1: Building Relationships

Strategy #2: Reducing Stress

Strategy #3: Increasing Status


along with a good background on poverty, neuroscience, action research and foundations.


Your team received:

Resources including video, slides and resources by email to assist their efforts as they plan to share with their staff



Your team needs to decide:

What and how will they share/continue to share with staff?

How they will implement Strategy #1: Building Relationships

What and how will they implement Strategy #2: Reducing Stress


The next session will be a WEBINAR with just the Superintendents to check-in on how things are going, what questions you might have and any details on implementation.
