Returning to Orlando for the second time, this third annual conference for K-5 educators provides an opportunity for teachers to discover new ways to drive success in the classroom by providing hundreds of impactful, proven strategies that can be implemented into all content areas immediately.
The conference's subtitle "Powerful Strategies for Maximizing Student Learning," appropriately reflects the rigor, teachable moments, and transformational teaching tactics illustrated within the event to elevate students' academic achievement and keep educators energized, motivated, and ready to face the challenges of a new school year. Expert presenters will guide educators through up close and personal learning, taking a deep dive into grade-specific content, and ready to ensure that solutions can be delivered confidently upon return to the classroom.
"We are so excited to be returning to Orlando this year," enthuses SDE Program Planner Mikell Lang. "This year promises even more of the deep content with the ready-to-implement strategies that teachers truly need."
Back by popular demand, the conference is headlined by best-selling author and teacher favorite Danny Brassell, as well as appearances by top experts Dan St. Romain, Reagan Tunstall, and Donna Whyte.
Another highlight of the conference is award-winning educator and motivator Debbie Silver, Ph.D., who will open the conference with an inspiring keynote. Through a combination of humor, poignant stories, and hilarious characterizations, Debbie reminds educators how vital the role of the teacher is, and how to find value in every student in the class and every day in the classroom. You'll leave with the all-important reminder that teachers really are heroes.
Other popular presenters include Jeromie Heath, Betty Hollas, Dr. Cynthia "Mama J" Johnson, Dedra Stafford, and Palma Lindsay.
Award-winning author Janiel Wagstaff, who will also be presenting, will be signing copies of her new Stella book series, which follow Stella's journey as she encounters narrative, informative, opinion, and poetry writing.
The conference is full of "extra's" and collaborative moments, including a Meet & Greet event where educators can network with colleagues, relax, and meet key presenters, an extra "Pinterest for Teachers" session, as well as daily "Take-Away Tips," that serve as time-savers, motivational tools, and knowledge-builders between presentation sessions.
