Start setting up at 9:30 for the 9:45 start time.  Also have a chromebook in front of the room to use the camera, but have the mic muted. At the end there is a chat icon that you can use to type a question to Coach Walters. Members of the admin team are going to be in your wings to support as needed.  If there are technology issues we will do our best…..
