Professional Development Opportunities this Summer

Attend the Brooklyn Public Library Teacher Lab from August 14-18. It will introduce teachers to many free resources available to teach in the 21st century classroom. Enrollment opens June 6 and will continue until class is filled. Offers 25 credit hours or 2 "P" credits.

Looking forward to next year

I am looking for a team for teachers to help develop a reading culture at FHS and help me implement school wide programs to foster independent reading. Email me at ebayer@schools.nyc.gov if you would like to help. One of my immediate ideas is to start a a book club in the library for students. We will discuss a different genre each month. Encourage your students to join. Meeting dates and times will be organized in the fall to accommodate the students' schedules. If you have any interested students, please send them my way.

FREEBIES!!!
