Great Teachers, Great Students


Instructor: Gayle Meinkes-Lumia –

East Meadow Location – July 25-29th 8 am – 5 pm   Monday – Friday

Each and every day in the teaching profession, we are knee deep in adolescence. Teachers wear a multitude of hats as they are faced with creating an atmosphere of challenges, choices, and meaningful experiences for students. The very vulnerability of adolescence makes it a time of tremendous opportunity for emotional, intellectual, and social growth. We can either make or break situations as they arise. Within this course, participants will complete a myriad of tasks: • Complete an introspection of themselves and their teaching styles • Complete research on adolescent growth (social and emotional) • Share relevant teaching stories that assist everyone in the teaching process • Cultivate student interest by creating exciting opportunities for growth • Master different approaches to prepare students for higher thinking • Execute lessons that enrich student learning • Walk in someone else’s shoes in terms of learning and comprehending. Overall, participants will be refreshed as they enhance their classrooms by learning more about themselves! *A must for all educators! (3 credits/45 hours) in-service credit only
