Programs in a Saturday Speakers Series were among 559 professional development events last year in the Fairfield-Suisun School District, said a report that trustees took up Thursday.
Speakers included Doug Curry on Llama Training: Exceptional Classroom Management, and Tina Schuler talking about building student-teacher relationships. Jeff Zwiers, co-author of the book “Academic Conversations,” also spoke as part of the Saturday series.
“Throughout history, conversations have allowed us to see different perspectives, build ideas and solve problems,” states the website of the book publisher. “Conversations, particularly those referred to in this book as academic conversations, push students to think and learn in lasting ways.”
