The COVID-19 pandemic has made the last two years incredibly difficult on students, parents and teachers. Multiple shifts between in-person and virtual classrooms have interrupted learning. Existing academic and socioeconomic gaps have been exposed and enlarged. Students are falling behind, some more than others. 

As we look forward to a time when society has moved past the pandemic, education will need to further evolve. What does the school of the future look and feel like? How do curricula and physical spaces need to adapt to meet students’ future needs? How do we make students whole for what they’ve lost?

Our featured speakers will be:

  • Anna Bear Dallis ‘11, MS ’14 – Principal, Excel Lower School in Brooklyn 
  • Larry Dake, MAT ’03, MA ’04, EdD ’14 – assistant superintendent for Binghamton City School District
  • Tracy Lyman ’99, MSEd ’01 – clinical faculty for TLEL at Binghamton University 
  • Rachel Murat, MA ’00 – 2020 New York State Teacher of the Year; social studies teacher at Maine-Endwell High School in Endwell, N.Y.
