*KEYNOTE SPEAKER*-Greg Wolcott - The Courage to Connect: Unleashing the Power of Relationships in Today’s Schools
Limited Capacity seats available

Brené Brown defines connection as the “energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” Connection in the classroom is king!  When connected, students feel the emotional safety needed to take chances, move out of their comfort zones, and live in the moment, not worrying they will fall prey to judgment and critique. Courageous teachers realize these attributes are needed for student success and intentionally make relationship building their top priority.

*KEYNOTE SPEAKER*-Greg Wolcott -Every Student Has a STORY: Do you Know it?
Limited Capacity seats available

The foundation for success in every great classroom is built upon strong relationships; relationships with the teacher, relationships with and between students, and relationships within one’s self.  Understanding each child’s background, prior knowledge, and what motivates them to excel is the best pre-assessment any teacher can have toward developing these connections. Do you know enough about each student to teach them well? Do your students know each other well enough to feel safe, comfortable and confident taking chances within the classroom? Do your students know enough about themselves to develop the self-efficacy needed to succeed in school and life?
