Teachers are every school’s greatest asset, and mission is every school’s most important objective. But, few things are more difficult for teachers than faithfully representing our far-too-often ethereal mission statements in the every-day trenches of the classroom. In this seminar, Dr. Littlejohn leads participants through practical steps that will ensure teachers that every lesson, every project, every field trip is mission driven, so that we are sure to deliver to our students and families exactly what they believe they are getting… mission relevant teaching.
