    The Surprising Science Behind Successful Remote Meetings

    This meeting will give us the opportunity to continue to get acquainted with each other and discuss a working strategy plan for our section as we progress through year 2021.

    Let's meet for a brief moment to pause and enjoy great conversation with great people, share ideas and work on implementing the goals for our K-12 Interest Section for 2021.  Upon registering, you will receive a confirmation email with your Zoom link.  We hope to see you there.  It's laid back and fun.  The goal is to have a community where each individual's expertise is shared and highlighted.  If you have any questions or ideas please email Roxanne Stewart at k12@gatesol.org .
