Breaking my long silence here to share this -- and the three launch videos that came before it. Teacher-friends and business-building friends alike, you're likely to find great ideas, especially if you're interested in transforming information-heavy offerings into successful, even life-changing experiences.

In the aftermath of Snowzilla / Snowpocalypse 2016 on the US East Coast, Virtual Mentoring participants who have power and Internet access will meet on Sunday, 1/24, at 3:00 Eastern time to talk about surviving (and even thriving in) the various unexpected "storms" that come our way in our teaching lives.  Hope to see you there!

For most of our US-based Latin teachers, this is a holiday weekend ... and for many of us, it comes at roughly the half-way point of the school year.  If you teach on a semester schedule, the first semester has probably just ended or is just about to end.  It's a great time to think about what we've accomplished so far, what we want to accomplish by the end of the school year, and how we might do things differently in years to come.

Please join us at 3:00 Eastern time today (Sunday, 1/17) to talk about these issues and others that are important to you, including the big themes that emerged this week over on the Latin Teacher Idea Exchange FB group.

 This week's Virtual Mentoring for Latin Teachers Hangouts are all about you and your classes.  Is there something wonderful that you'd like to share with the world?  Something not-so-wonderful that you'd like to talk about ... to keep it from happening again?  Something you'd like your students to learn or do, but you're not quite sure how to make it happen?  These are just some of the things we'll be talking about on October 11 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time.  This is the Event page for the Sunday Hangout.

After a short but intense conversation about complex combined classes on Saturday, 9/26, Virtual Mentoring for Latin Teachers returns with more on the subject of Supporting Independent Learners both in and outside of the "regular" classroom.  Do  you have a student who wants or needs an independent-study experience?  Friends who want help as they "teach themselves Latin" as adults?  That one student who is in the "right" level, but is significantly faster or slower than the rest of the class?  Other situations in which one or more learners need to work independently?  Please join us on Sunday, 9/27, at 3:00 pm Eastern time for the next round of this conversation.

There was so much to say about Supporting Independent Learners in (and beyond) the Latin classroom that we decided to keep the conversation going for a second week.  This is the Hangout for Saturday, September 26 -- hope you can join us!
