Juli’s session 

Teachers are more aware than ever that the social emotional health of our students impacts their learning, but with a full curriculum it is hard to find time to fit it in!  Iditarod is a through line to connect social-emotional and culturally responsive content and integrate it into the curriculum. In this session you will hear about lessons that can enhance current practices, build Iditarod enthusiasm, and promote a collaborative classroom community.
