This spring, we were fortunate enough to attend not one, not two, but three, in-person PBIS conferences. We know scheduling conflicts and budget constraints can get in the way of making it possible for everyone to register. So, this month we decided to take some time to share our conference experiences, the conversations we had, and the things we learned during our time at these events.
In our Teach by Design article, we’ve got a list of 12 tips and tricks we picked up from conference sessions devoted to social-emotional learning and mental health. In today’s Expert Instruction episode, we’re bringing together our PBISApps team to share some of the most pressing questions we answered at our vendor booth.
Joining the conversation is Katie Schulz, one of our Customer Support Specialists here at PBISApps. Katie is a 7-year veteran on our Customer Support Team. If you’ve ever had a question about how to use any of our apps, you’ve probably spoken to Katie.
Jessica Daily is our Training Team Lead who’s been with PBISApps for more than 6 years. You may have crossed paths with her when you attended one of our SWIS Facilitator Certification trainings or one of our application webinars. She is a self-proclaimed “data geek” who loves to teach others to use data to inform practices and support positive change in our educational systems.
Robin Spoerl is our Marketing and Design Manager. Everyone gets to experience his work when they land on the PBISApps website, because he designed it! He has edited every tutorial video and designed each piece of swag you’ve ever picked up at our vendor booth.
