Keynotes & Breakout Sessions

DISCIPLINE FOR IMPROVEMENT – If we really want to change the lives of our students and improve their behaviors, we must first address the things we can control. It’s a lot of hard work, but there basic fundamental characteristics that successful schools and classrooms have to reach even the most challenging students. Reduce and even eliminate exclusionary discipline by teaching our students self-discipline, self-efficacy, and self-regulation. If we care, we do things the right way, and we follow through with passion, great things will happen for our kids and our schools! 

ARE YOU INNOVATIVE? INSIDE SECRETS TO EFFECTIVE SCHOOL LEADERSHIPThere are very specific reasons why some leaders have a way of inspiring their schools to achieve at the highest levels even during difficult situations. Tackling your priorities and challenges as a unified team is essential. Innovation is about transforming change into progress. Consensus isn’t created, it’s found! 

HIGH-YIELD STRATEGIES FOR 100% ENGAGEMENT – Students and staff need to be active and enthusiastic participants in the learning process. This means that we must create experiences in both staff meetings and in classrooms focused on motivation, engagement, and empowerment to ensure  active participation. 

Keynotes and breakout sessions will challenge participants to rethink current instructional practices, school systems, and how they connect to staff and students. Participants will be actively engaged and be provided opportunities to reflect and discuss. The speaker will be dynamic in his approach and share insight into decisions and specific strategies that have made his school and leadership highly successful with the goal that participants learn and are inspired to improve their own practices. Details of any speaking or workshops included in this agreement can be further explained in detail as requested by the client.
