Whereas, this presentation highlights the basic human condition, especially within the context of hyper-sensitivity, anxiety, and classic "fight or flight" responses at the core. Something we all can relate to. For the best approach to Autism, as well as other neurological responses, may well be the need to first see this as an extension of the human experience, rather than through the lens of a "disease". For compassion and understanding will serve our students best as we create environments supporting their success. This brief presentation will feature research and other science-based evidence at the core. In addition, alternative coping strategies and skill development will be shared for your consideration.

Relationship, Relevance, and Resilience, The New Three Rs Guiding Todays' Schools and Classrooms
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Simply, our most challenging students, are most successful within classrooms which emphasize the following: RELATIONSHIP at the core, RELEVANCE and meaning within the content, and RESILIENCE as a life-long set of skills. Any detour from this path often leads to confrontation, dis-regulation, and a disconnect with our primary intention; instruction leading to learning. This presentation highlights what we ALREADY KNOW within, the research behind it, but most importantly, supports the classroom teacher by guiding us all to follow the original intention why we all got into this business in the first place; to make a difference as well as impact the lives of our students. The New Three Rs is the path to do so. You will walk away from the presentation inspired, encouraged, and guided with specific strategies so you can get back to the real purpose found within teaching; and make this year the best year ever!

This presentation has developed since it's original description for I will be sharing the NURTURED HEART APPROACH as a RELATIONSHIP STRATEGY. During the summer I participated in NHA Trainer Training and I am excited to share this wonderful resource as an introduction the the NHA program since I am not a certified trainer with NHA.  Thank you to Linda, the Director of Special Services for supporting me on this path!  For this is a wonderful approach to add to our tool kit.

Keynote--Resilient Teachers and Leaders: Challenging the Status Quo
Limited Capacity seats available

“Every child deserves someone to be crazy about them.” This is the mantra of
Salome Thomas-EL, award-winning teacher and principal, and
internationally recognized educator. Principal EL believes that resilient teachers
and leaders take risks, make courageous decisions, and challenge the status
quo. They are able to bounce back from adversity to become innovative and
transformational to ensure all students are exposed to an engaging curriculum
and effective teaching. Transformational leaders also shift mindsets and inspire
students to develop positive attitudes and relationships with others. In his
thought-provoking presentation, Principal EL will share how we can develop
positive school cultures that foster the social and emotional development of all
students, so teachers and leaders can focus on the protective processes that
build responsible decision-making and resilience. In his keynote address,
Principal EL brings a powerful combination of love, passion, caring, and
leadership to craft a refreshing, common-sense roadmap for teachers and
administrators to help kids achieve their dreams, no matter the odds.

Getting to the Heart of the Matter: An Introduction to the Resilience Advantage (An Inside Job!)
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

As we all navigate the Social Emotional Learning continuum within our schools and classrooms, many of us have discovered an authentic connection between students and teachers will serve as the basis for learning. We also have discovered that no matter what curriculum, text, or activity one employs, authenticity is an extension of one's ability to be self-resilient, self-aware, and vulnerable with one self before one can truly establish a deep relationship with others; specifically, our students. This training is a condensed version of an 8 hour program highlighting The Resilient Advantage; a program developed by the Institute of Heartmath; the leading research foundation supporting personal empowerment, coherence, and stress-management techniques. You will walk away from this presentation with specific strategies you can use in your classroom as well as within your daily lives in preparation for each day. This is NOT just another "thing to do" on a never-ending list of responsibilities; it's more about bringing balance, calm, and coherence to you and to your classroom!

UPDATE: 8/21/2018

SInce the original presentation was developed, I have taken this program, the RESILIENCE ADVANTAGE, and embedded it into a new presentation called SELFIRST.  I believe you will find this updated version more to your liking and needs within the Summit.   Thank you!

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

It's time for a new perspective to unfold especially when addressing the needs of exceptional kids. Staff, parents, and students are expected to do so much with so little: As a result, a divide may have developed between home and school due to unnecessary stress, fear, and a general sense of discouragement felt on both sides. "Love, Understanding, and Other Best Practices" provides a transformative shift for educators and parents through mutual understanding, evidence-guided decisions, and strength-based intervention. Due to the complex nature of kids today, with ADHD, Autism, and other neurological mysteries unfolding at epidemic levels, and the notion of ACES & trauma at the core of so many of our students' life experiences, we have no choice; a new paradigm needs to support our educational system, and most importantly, support our kids. Let love, understanding, and other best practices be your guide! This presentation is founded upon the book available on Amazon.

Who Needs Character Development? [BSD ONLY]
Limited Capacity seats available

The truth is everyone needs character development. We know that our staff is in need of strong classroom management and relational skills. We know that bullying is not happening by our at-risk students as much as it is our most socially popular kids. We also know that when we put an intentional focus on character development, we create a climate where all students and staff want to come to school versus feel like they have to come to school. This resource packed workshop will show you an intentional way to take your school to the next level when it comes to climate and culture. It will connect the dots on how to strengthen your multi-tiered system of support for behavior in your school(s).
