The Randolph Association of Educators hosted its End of the Year Beginning Teacher Organizing Program at The Hubbard House in Farmer. Led by Thomas Martin, the event provided eager educators from across Randolph County the opportunity to learn how to increase classroom engagement using goal setting with the usage of Flipgrid, a new technology tool. In addition, the group discussed instructional strategies on how to ‘Make the Days Count’ instead of counting down the days of the 2017-2018 school year.
