What resources do your fellow teachers say are most helpful to them? Now more than ever, it’s important for teachers to listen and learn from one another.

In July, over 10,000 teachers across California gathered for the third annual Better Together: California Teachers Summit to share ideas to foster inclusive classrooms, spark learning and equip all students to succeed.

Our new report, “2016 Better Together: California Teachers Summit – A Report on What Teachers Said About Collaboration and Professional Learning”, captures the highlights of teacher conversations, ideas and suggested resources from last year’s Summit. Learn more by downloading the report here.
