180 Days of Awesome: Celebrating Every Day of Education

Keynote presented by Monica Genta

You are AWESOME and awesome is all around us. During every day of school, something amazing is bound to happen. Some days, that awesome is easy to see. It comes in the form of laughter, academic progress, achieving goals, and building relationships with kids. Some days that awesome is nearly impossible to see among all the meetings, curriculum changes, displeased parents, and…pandemics. Here is the cool part, focusing on the awesome has the power to turn each day of education into an exciting adventure in learning. Come along with me on this 180 day quest as we learn to focus on those little amazing moments that have the power to change everything. Because sometimes it’s the small things that make the biggest difference.

Conference registration required.
