Be a Driver of Change: Building Communities Inside and Outside the Classroom


When everyone in a school comes together, they can achieve things beyond what a single teacher can do in the classroom. That’s the power of community! In this webinar, we will interview educator and school leader Mark Robertson of the American International School in Da Nang. Mark will share about the successful reopening he led after school closures, focusing not just on operational procedures but also on getting students where they need to be academically and socially. This kind of community building has benefits beyond school, so Mark and our host Andy will discuss the benefits this brings to students and the doors it may open for them in the future.
