    School-Hive Organization Connections Survey

    We would love it if your organization could give us some insight into how you work with teachers.  This is a brief survey to help us get a sense of the Chicagoland professional development reach.  If you took this survey before, but feel that someone else in your organization works more closely with teachers and could answer these questions better, please ask them to fill it out!

    Teachers and Hive Survey

    Planning an event for teachers?  We’d love it if you could have teachers fill out this survey.  We hope to get some ideas about how teachers find out about events, the kinds of events teachers are going to, and what draws them to these events.
