Helping educate young minds is a beautiful, rewarding career, but we all know about the intensity of the classroom, the near constant human interaction, and the never-ending parade of grading, lesson planning, paperwork and administrative tasks.

Educators earn their weekends.

And now, we have the perfect educational addition to your relaxing weekend — a chance for you to pick your head up and think big picture about your own growth and learning. Silver Lake College of the Holy Family is hosting a webinar on Sunday, April 7 at 1 p.m. CST about what it means to get an advanced degree in education, and you're invited to tune in and learn!

Keep reading to learn about our group of presenters and the topics that will be covered in this online forum.

 Learn from the Director of Graduate Education, Nancy Sim, and from Program Leaders

Nancy Sim is the Director of Graduate Education at Silver Lake College of the Holy Family. She taught elementary and secondary students with special needs, including collaboration with parents and education professionals in both rural and inner-city environments for 10 years. For the past 15 years, she has taught special education, elementary education and graduate education courses at Silver Lake College of the Holy Family. Her passion is helping future administrators and teacher leaders create schools where all students feel safe and successful.

Now, Sim serves as the director at Silver Lake College of the Holy Family and helps ensure that our two master’s programs in Teacher Leadership and Administrator Leadership are offering students the best possible preparation for career success.

Sim also will be joined by program leaders and facilitators from our Chippewa Falls and Pulaski locations. Together, this group will discuss the challenges and opportunities in Wisconsin education today and how the Silver Lake College of the Holy Family graduate programs can help educators thrive and grow in their professional environments, creating lasting change for schools and students.
