May 21 @ 4pm - Join Dr. Greene for a Fireside Chat

These are the times that try everyone's souls. If you're a parent, you're trying to manage your kids 24/7, you're trying to supervise remote learning, all while trying to get work done (remotely or otherwise) for your day job. If you're an educator, you're trying to help your students learn under less-than-ideal circumstances. That's a lot of trying. We'd like to try too, with a special fireside chat with Dr. Greene to answer your questions about how to manage it all and share your creative solutions. The chat will be on Thursday, May 21st, at 7 pm ET, and it's free too. Sign up here, and submit your questions and comments here.
