Welcome to the National Network of State Teachers of the Year (NNSTOY) on TeachingPartners

TeachingPartners Live Workshop

Wednesday, Feb 7 and Feb 14 at 8:00 pm EST
Design Thinking for STEM Educators

Now Available: TeachingPartners Live Collaboratives, presented by NNSTOY

Join NNSTOY and NNSTOY members as they share what they’ve learned about activating, engaging, and supporting STEM and encouraging social- and-emotional learning in the classroom—-and on supporting black male educators in schools nationwide

Register for any of these free, credit-bearing, TeachingPartners Live Collaboratives and learn how NNSTOY teachers apply their experience to these important professional issues. When you’re done, you’ll be part of a learning group of teachers who can support your own efforts, and you can apply what you’ve learned toward receiving a Certificate of Participation directly from TeachingPartners.

Join NNSTOY’s Dyane Smokorowski as she kicks off the first of three sets of new TeachingPartners Live Collaboratives presented by NNSTOY. Beginning Wednesday, February 7, Dyane shares the Design Thinking process that strengthens her students’ social emotional learning, problem-solving, risk-taking, and innovation skills.

Enrollment is limited. Miss a session? That’s fine. You can view it, recorded on Facebook and right here on TeachingPartners.

Limited to 30 participants
