Maverick Leadership
Inspire the maverick in all educators – give them tools and techniques to move even the most reticent educational institutions forward to benefit all kids. Attendees will walk away with immediately applicable ways to transform the culture of their campus to provide students with the best possible opportunities for success through innovative approaches to professional learning, passion-based initiatives and inspiring examples of leadership. Rather than recommend formal lesson plans, we believe 21st century learners require more flexible strategies and mindsets in their teachers.

Education draws passionate & talented individuals to its ranks. These professionals are completely dedicated to student learning, and strive daily to connect with each student to help them achieve. Often, these motivated individuals get driven into a ‘bunker’ mentality by forces beyond their control, and take refuge in making the learning environment the best for those students within their scope of influence.

Learn how educational leaders break out of these confines and stretch their entrepreneurial muscles through innovative public-private partnerships, contests, outreach and other efforts. Inspire the maverick in all educators – using successful examples to give them tools and techniques to move even the most reticent educational institutions forward for the benefit of all kids.

Hacking Social Emotional Learning
Creating a multifaceted social-emotional learning program that is both ongoing and engaging to students of all ages can be a daunting task for any school leader. Come discover the ideas/strategies one school site implemented to make SEL a priority. 

This will be a hands-on, interactive, and high-energy presentation. Participants will hear about and see examples of the various strategies, ideas, and events we implemented on our campus and in our classrooms that not only went beyond the traditional motivational speaker/assembly but made SEL as much a part of the curriculum as math or science. Participants will also get an opportunity to hear how we incorporated our upper-grade students in a variety of ways to be models for our primary students including teaching the social-emotional lessons to our K-3 classes themselves!
