Start. Right. Now - Teach and Lead for Excellence
Excellent teachers lead and excellent leaders teach. Excellent teachers and excellent leaders have much more in common, including 4 key behaviors they exhibit on a daily basis: They Know the Way, Show the Way, Go the Way, and Grow Each Day. Whether leading students or staff, these amazing educators know that in order to lead effectively, we must Start Right Now. In this session, you will explore the importance of teaching and leading from a framework of core values and discover ways to act upon these values to improve the climate and culture of your classroom, school, or district. Learn new ways to inspire, build capacity, model successful behaviors and grow professionally each and every day.

Inside the Box
Educators have the power and privilege to transform the lives of the students they serve - and they don't have to wait for the system to change to do that! Although curriculum, standards, policies and procedures, and standardized tests are a reality (and not always a positive one) - the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and the Innovator's Mindset provide us with a platform to innovate inside the box (while fighting to deconstruct the box at the same time!). Come to this session to be inspired, empowered, and motivated to give every single student the education they deserve, despite the barriers you may face.
