National Teacher of the Year: Sydney Chaffee

Share This Event
Mills Theatre, Carr Hall, Longmeadow Campus

Join us for Come Outside: The Future of Education presented by Sydney Chaffee, the 2017 National Teacher of the Year.

As teachers, we are trained to plan each moment carefully. We study how to maximize students' learning time and how to orchestrate discovery. Often, though, in the classroom, our plans don't go quite as planned. What lessons can those moments teach us about the promise and the future of education?
