 EDUCATORS!   Explore new and different perspectives in education!

TEACH invites you to join us to participate in over 30 sessions that will enhance your success as a teacher.  We know that teachers are constantly looking for ways to overcome the education status quo.  Find solutions!  Learn about current best practices! Expand your repertoire of teaching strategies!

Start with a New Vision  Hear our Keynote Speaker, Dr. Scott Poland, an internationally recognized expert on school safety, bullying and school crisis intervention to list a few.  Dr. Poland’s presentation, “Educators Making a Difference for Students in a Challenging World,” will help you develop and enhance your knowledge and understanding of the serious risk factors for students.  All students need to feel a connection to school and to have a significant relationship with one or more adults.  Dr. Poland will outline factors that are essential for student success and resiliency.

The afternoon Featured Speaker is Dr. Frances Stetson, a leader in supporting systems change in schools.  Her presentation, “Culturally Responsive Instruction: Techniques and Tools,” will guide you in locating yourself on the cultural proficiency continuum.  Specific ways to build authentic relationships with every student are skills she will offer to teachers.
