    Loved the creativity section! Loved everything!
    I will try some of the strategies and resources that Deb introduced in this webinar. Sometimes we do not give ourselves enough credit for how we as educators had to upskill overnight due to the pandemic!

    I love these ideas!
    Great ideas! I shared the MathReps with my nephew who teaches math. I hope to use some of the Upskills Activities and Soft Skills to Pay the Bills since I teach Health Science and find that students lack soft skills.
    Thanks for presenting!
