    My Summary:

       The Intel Essentials Course provided just-in-time skills to two faculties that had to come together to learn 21st century skills very quickly to start a new school year.  This essay describes their feelings of awkwardness at being faced with what seemed like an overwhelming task.  Through the rigors and guidance of the Intel Instructor and a Tech Facilitator from the County Office, the teachers began to work together to find solutions to their common problems of getting to know each other, function as a team, and have the confidence to deliver solid instruction to 900+ students. They all look back on the experience now and credit Intel with not only starting them on their successful journey, but helping them believe in themselves.
