Read about Jen's presentation at the Curriculum Breakfast at the SJCOE.
From freshly minted teachers to seasoned administrators, the educators who gathered to hear Jennifer Abrams speak at the Curriculum Breadfast at the SJCOE on January 13 were there to learn how to better work together with colleagues and parents of all ages.
“We’re going to talk about being generationally savvy,” said Abrams during a presentation based on her book “The Multigenerational Workplace: Communicate, Collaborate and Create Community”.
