Encountering Educators: How to start and run a district #EdCamp with Lauren Mertz!

Lauren Mertz is a teacher doing GREAT things to improve teacher practice in the Saint Charles School District. As a member of the district professional development team, Lauren helped to organize the district’s first #EdCamp and has only continued to refine it now that it is in year three. Listen to her talk to me about how she got the idea to host an edcamp, what she put into place to generate interest, and why she thinks that it is important to continue growing the movement!

“As teachers, if we are going to help kids grow, we have to continue to grow ourselves.” – Lauren Mertz
