Two FRHSD Teacher Coaches Present at ISTELive23

Laurie Floyd and Dave KretzmerThis summer, Dave Kretzmer and Laurie Floyd, two teacher coaches in the district, were chosen to present at the ISTELive23 (International Society for Technology in Education) conference in Philadelphia. The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) is a nonprofit organization that works with the global education community to accelerate the use of technology to solve problems in education and inspire innovation. According to its website, ISTELive is one of the world’s most comprehensive edtech events, attended by a global contingent of education leaders, teachers, coaches, librarians/media specialists, and more. Over 18,000 educators worldwide attended the conference this summer with over 1,000 professional development sessions and presentations.

Mr. Kretzmer and Mrs. Floyd's presentation, "Building Teacher Efficacy & Collaboration: Making Curricula that Works for Your Teachers," explained how the district uses Google products like Sheets and Docs to create and build curricula and discussed how curriculum writing methods led to more collaboration amongst staff and more equity amongst our classrooms.
