From your Board: 🏁We did it!🏁
Congratulations to every member of our wonderful chapter for raising to the challenge yet again as an Educator.  We should remember it fondly when the pandemic began families proclaimed, "I don't know how [teachers] do it, they're heroes!" For a brief moment our collective began to see how amazing we really are. 
You've taught in hybrid settings, you became on screen personalities, you tried out engagement strategies to keep students interested, and as we collectively walk through the veil of this shared experience we can still confidently proclaim, "There's no substitute  for the shared in-person experience of learning together."

Year in Reflection

Results of our survey
The Board gathered this past June to debrief on the CSTA survey which National sent out back in May and we have distilled this information into a single document for your perusal if you were so inclined.  This is mostly informational and actionable data and does not highlight successes.
Key successes this past year:
  • Increased membership (largest year yet!)
  • Online meetings were fantastic venues to pull in new members where travel and family obligations made attending in-person meetings difficult.
  • We have successfully filled every Board and Advisor slot with returning members and new leadership!
