During this uncertain, unbelievably bizarre and unsettling time, it is SO wonderful to see all of the “GOOD” in the world. If you haven’t seen it already, you can check out all of the AMAZING free resources and content that small businesses, teachers, presenters and teachers pay teachers authors are giving away all listed in one place on my latest blog. If you HAVE seen it but haven’t checked it out lately, you may want to because I’ve been adding between 2-4 resources every 12 hours!
Another “good” thing that warmed my heart and might be engaging to tell your students about: Zion Williamson of the New Orleans Pelicans has promised to cover the lost wages of employees of the Smoothie King Center during the NBA hiatus.
Another GREAT thing… Karen Rowen of Fluency Fast and Tina Hargaden of CI Liftoff came together this weekend and worked tirelessly because they saw a need and were concerned for members of our community who are greatly affected by COVID19. Many of the presenters and workshop leaders in our community (myself included) experienced (and are still experiencing) losing 50%-100% of their income in a matter of days with events being cancelled for up to 10 weeks out all around the Nation and the world. They reached out to many of us and came up with a plan to help try and supplement some of that lost income.
Karen is offering her platform (and not taking any money herself) for us to sell LIVE and pre-recorded webinars during this crazy time! The money raised will be split amongst the presenters whose incomes have been affected by COVID-19. The webinars are dynamite! Just check them out! There are also language classes being offered too! French and Spanish! Some of the presenters are: Bill Van Patten, Jason Fritz, Faith Laux, Leslie Davison, Tina Hargaden, Allison Litten, Justin Slocum Bailey, Leslie Kronemeyer, Adriana Ramirez, Sabrina, Elissa McClean more!!!
This is an incredible opportunity for quality PD at a GREAT price and for an AMAZING cause! Please consider joining us! The webinars start as soon as tomorrow! YAYYY! If you know folks who may want to donate but not participate in a webinar that is an option too! Please have them visit the site!
We would love to have you join us!
Until next time, stay safe and well!
Sending you LOVE LOVE LOVE,
