I believe that the Teachers Guild already has this figured out, but have the educational presentation in a nice place and we'll be attentive and ready to participate. I am teaching a new grade level and a combination class this year. The last thing I need is an extra meeting during the week. There was no requirement for me to attend the introductory presentation regarding this collaboration. I went because I was curious, and it was offered in a fabulous location. I wonder if other educators would be more interested and attentive if the meetings were held in nice "meeting rooms."
