Our first Twitter Chat after the 2017 Better Together: California Teachers Summit will be focused on sharing out reflections, ideas, and resources from the summit, as well as our action plans for implementing our insights in schools starting right away. We’re lucky and delighted to have two of our esteemed EdTalk speakers to co-moderate the chat. It should be a fun hour of both reflection and action planning and we hope you will join us!
