Regardless of the content we teach and the age of our students, there are challenges that are common to all of us. In this upbeat presentation I outline those challenges and share the best resources and strategies for tackling them. Some of challenges I’ll tackle in this presentation include building relationships with stakeholders, Internet filtering policies, and creating engaging projects for all learners.
