  • Community Engagement

Having a network of colleagues outside of their immediate co-workers was crucial when disaster struck. The members of the Museum Educators of Puget Sound have leaned into this community for support, resources, and information during the COVID-19 pandemic. Join them for open conversation on what they learned about their identity as museum educators, how they supported each other during different phases of the pandemic, and how to decide what educators can carry forward.
