Teachers from across Orange County and the region are invited to participate in a free, teacher-led professional learning institute June 26-27 at Cal State Fullerton, held in collaboration with the Better Together: California Teachers Summit, set for next month.
The 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. program, offered by Teach Plus, features local teachers leading the institute, including CSUF alumna Tricia Hyun.
Hyun is an English teacher at Parks Junior High School in Fullerton and earned her doctorate in education-educational leadership at CSUF. She will co-teach “Change Your Universe With 21st-Century Tools: Google Classroom and Hyperdocs!” for teachers of all grades. This session explores how to leverage technology to meet the needs of individual students.
