Teach Better: Conversations for Change

Traci didn’t sit on the sidelines after Goerge Floyd’s death.  She began a mission of educating school leaders on social media leading topics including racism, antiracism, and equity.

She led a conversation with deeply challenging and thought-provoking questions for educators in July for the weekly Teach Better conversation on Twitter called Mastery Chat. See the questions she developed here.

Building a Learning Guide to Support Parents

This School Rubric webinar, “Building a Learning Guide for Parents that Works,” reveals Traci’s heart work in building a learning guide that fosters a collaborative partnership with parents in the education of their children during virtual learning. She created two versions of her learning guide…one that is very comprehensive in scripting and support, and one that is more streamlined.  The learning guide also includes activities from other teachers on her team as content contributors.

Teach Better 12 Hour Live Stream

Jeff Gargas’ insanely awesome idea for Teach Better to host its first 12 hour live stream included Traci as a guest. Lots of laughter and excitement, but the heart of the conversation was encouraging and inspiring teachers…and the story of the typo… #Betterflies!

Texans Giving Back - Documentary by Castleview

Content is organized by grade and subject.  Traci’s efforts and passion for Operation Teacher Relief caught the eye of a Castleview,  a premier video production company, while they were developing a documentary called, “Texans Giving Back.” See the beautiful story here.
