DESCRIPTION: Imagine you own a magical “Teaching Coat” that has the power to tell the story of who you are as an educator. In this hands-on, creative session you’ll be inspired to explore your “inner teacher”, who you are, and what you believe through making your own Teaching Coat. Using meaningful symbols, writings, quotes, memorabilia, and artifacts, you’ll begin to create a wearable this collage of your professional identity—a wearable teaching philosophy.  It’s a unique treasure to share and inspire dialogue with colleagues and students!
