    1 PM ET / 12 PM CT / 10 AM PT

    In this pressure-cooker school environment, is it any wonder that many teachers are fleeing the profession they once loved?

    We want students to thrive, and we also want teachers to thrive — to have the support and resources they need to reach struggling students without sacrificing their own well-being. 

    Join us to hear from Angela Watson, creator of Truth for Teachers and the 40-Hour Teacher Workweek, about practical ways to make the work of education sustainable, effective, and yes, enjoyable. Whether you are an administrator, teacher, or support staff, you will learn about solutions that make the best use of your most valuable resource — time — so that you can meet the needs of your students minus the burnout.
