Teacher’s Lounge

Teacher’s Lounge

It’s an online meeting in Zoom for K-12 educators and speech-language pathologists immersed in the chaos of online teaching and telepractice.  A place to:

  • Connect with each other
  • Have a casual conversation
  • Get tips and share ideas
  • Take a break and recharge so you can leave better able to deal and make sense of the muddle you suddenly find yourself in

How it works:

Bonnie and Jess open the Lounge on the first Friday of every month from 4:00 – 5:00 PM (Eastern time).

We balance the time between sharing a teaching tip or resource that supports effective instruction and open conversation about whatever is most pressing (which might be what we’re dealing with at work or how we’re dealing with our hair in a pandemic). 

It’s a smart but not stuffy hour online.  You’ll leave in a better mood than you were when you got there.  Always.

We update our topics each time we meet, so check back here or one of our social media pages for updates.

  • December 4th:   Holiday Lit. List – Come one, come all and share a book you would give to every educator you know (if you could afford it)
  • January 8th:  Maintaining your instructional focus amidst chaos

For a link to the Lounge, fill in the fields below. (If you’re hesitant, know that we created this space to support you, not to spam you, and we don’t want random creeps showing up.)  Then check your email for the link.  (If it’s not in your inbox within a few minutes, check your junk or promotions folder.)

The link will always be the same, so you only have to do this step once if you save it in a smart place.

Architects For Learning has been helping educators and SLPs for over 30 years make the invisible visible and teach what’s hard about language, literacy, and learning.  We hope this space gives you the support you need to step up to the challenges you’re facing.  If we keep leaning on each other, we’ll all make it through.

“Bonnie and Jess and the other “guest” speakers have been wonderful.  The information is invaluable and the camaraderie amongst the attendees creates a safe learning environment where everyone can ask questions and share answers.  The lounge is my favorite part of the week…seeing other professionals and building my skills.  You have been extraordinarily generous and I am so happy to see you and Jess each week. Thank you.  Thank you.”

“Bonnie and Jess and the other professionals have been a gift as we adapt to teletherapy. The knowledge, patience and time that they’ve given and continue to share with so many of us navigating these new waters cannot be measured. Thank you is insufficient.”
