Professional Boundaries and Social Networking for School Employees: This popular Vermont-NEA workshop explores professional boundaries educators need in order to achieve the environment that promotes the strongest student learning. Vermont-NEA staff will discuss boundaries in three categories: Physical, Emotional, and Knowledge. Additionally, they will address laws pertinent to teachers and ESPs such as mandatory reporting, FERPA, and restraint laws. Embedded in this workshop are scenarios for participants to analyze and discuss, applying what they have learned. Active questioning and discussion is encouraged throughout this session!
