Our workshops are:

The Power of Pictures with Beth Olshansky

Through the use of simple hands-on art experiences, the study of quality picture books, and an on-going Artists/Writers Workshop, Beth’s innovative approaches give students access to visual and kinesthetic as well as verbal modes of thinking at each and every stage of the writing process. They allow all learners to enter the reading/writing process from a position of personal strength and enthusiasm.



Math in the 21st Century Classroom with Marian Small

Join Marian as she guides teachers on what math looks like in a classroom in 2018. Beth will draw on her years of experience and many published works to share her evidence based approaches to teaching math in our complex elementary classrooms and help educators communicate what is most vital to our students today.

While we encourage members to have an NSTU web account, one is NOT REQUIRED to register for a conference.
