Updated: Aug 3, 2023

Good morning, everyone. I am so excited to be joining you this morning. Thank you so much for waking up with me on a Saturday morning. I got my coffee. Hopefully, you got yours, and let's jump right into it. This presentation was created from a short bonus chapter I co-wrote with a couple of my other friends called EdguMagic Uncharted. So these three ideas, these three truths: expectations, unstoppable, and making it work come from that bonus chapter.

Whether you are teaching online, face to face, or some sort of combination, you are an educator of excellence.


  • Show up for your students

  • Students are counting on us

  • Be flexible

  • Show grace

Expectation - Communication
  • Check-in often

  • Small group

  • Whole group

  • Individually


  • You can do this!

  • But you have to take care of yourself!

  • Fill your space with motivational quotes and images

  • Keep your WHY in mind

  • Connect with other educators

Making it Work

  • Teachers were asked to move their face-to-face class to an online space, and you know what?

  • We made it work.

Making it Work - Engage students in learning.
