Keynote: Are kids losing their ability to problem solve?
We have to ask questions in today’s classroom that can’t be googled. Why? Because any question that can, requires no critical thinking or problem-solving skills to solve. Join Travis Allen as he paints a vision for what learning could look like when students are challenged to find their own problems to solve and take ownership of their learning.

Reach Them. Teach Them.
What does it mean for educators to reach students where they are, and why is this practice important? What are the benefits of this investment? How can we use our gifts, to help students figure out their own? People have complimented me on the way that I empower my children. I tell them that the trick is that I make it my priority to LEARN them, and I reciprocate by allowing them to LEARN me! Through the practice of being vulnerable, open, and honest, I receive vulnerability, openness, and honesty return. In this interactive workshop, we will discuss different ways of building relationships and gaining respect from our students, so that we can differentiate learning and meet them where they are!

Creating Connectivity Through Proactive Circles
Limited Capacity full

Creating Connectivity through Proactive Circles “It doesn’t matter whether you have 20-30 kids in a class. It doesn’t matter whether the teacher has a graduate degree. What matters is the environment that a student enters when he walks through the classroom door.” Robert Blum, MD, PhD All humans are hardwired to connect. Just as we need food, shelter, and clothing, human beings also need strong and meaningful relationships to thrive. Strengthening relationships between individuals, whether adult-adult, adult-student, or student-student is an integral part to the success of a positive climate. By creating social connection within our community, we can decrease teacher absenteeism, increase student connectedness, improve classroom management, increase engagement with staff and students, decrease suspensions…we BUILD RELATIONSHIPS So, How do we strengthen relationships? One way is to allow proactive circles to be part of your daily routine- not just in the classroom but also in staff meetings and parent meetings. Circles create equality and equity and provide safety and trust and can restore broken relationships as well. In this highly energetic workshop, participants will learn about different types of circles, why it’s important that individuals understand their “why” of doing circle practice, how to build norms, and strategies they can use immediately to engage in positive relationship building.

The Biology of Belonging: Why We’re Wired to Connect
Humans are social animals with a biological need to belong. Throughout our history, being part of a group increased our chances for surviving and those who were separated from their group often suffered severe consequences. In our increasingly isolated world, it is more important than ever for people to feel socially connected. Social connectedness isn’t about being popular, or having a zillion friends. Although relationships with other individuals is important, research shows that it’s belonging to groups that is most important for our health. Social connectedness is crucial to improving positive physical and mental health and well-being. Studies show that a lack of social connection is actually worse for your health than obesity, smoking, and high blood pressure. On the other hand, strong social connection strengthens our immune system, lowers anxiety and depression, and even helps us live longer. Additionally, people who feel connected are more empathetic, trusting, and cooperative. Isn’t this the climate we want in our schools and community? So how do we create a greater sense of belonging and connection? In this engaging and interactive workshop, participants will learn about the biology of belonging, as well as strategies and structures for building belonging and cultivating connection in the classroom, at home, and in the community.

Keynote: What Does Fostering Growth Mindset Look and Sound Like Inside and Outside of the Classroom?
What does the process of instilling grit and resilience actually look, sound, and feel like for both students and educators? How do you help every child tap into their power within, so that he/she can maximize their full potential and become life-long learners? In this keynote, educators will understand how to build cultural competency in order to meet students where they are, and help them PUSH THROUGH and be the highest level of themselves. I will share my personal story of how my method and strategy of teaching inner-city children has spread to become a global empowerment initiative, one that has gained national and international coverage, and impacted change in classrooms all over the world.
