Educators’ Confluence 2019

A Mindful Convergence of Learning, Connecting, and Rejuvenating

 

Don't miss this special event with national innovative education leaders who will transform your practice and replenish your resiliency!

Gather together with other PreK-12 educators to increase your resiliency and reconnect with yourself, your students, and your profession. This Confluence combines three themes — or “streams”— that contribute to that resiliency: LearningConnecting, & Rejuvenating.

You'll leave with a fresh perspective and proven skills to increase student learning, trauma-informed applications, and ways to amplify your personal and professional strengths and satisfaction. 

Why should I attend?

Because you are a PK-12 teacher, counselor, administrator, or staff member who wants to: 

  • LEARN how to deepen your practice through critical thinking, creativity, inquiry, and literacy

  • CONNECT by strengthening, broadening, and deepening your connections to students, peers, self, and others.

  • REJUVENATE by reflecting on your practice, growing your strengths, and applying fresh ways and thinking

You can choose a theme that best meets your needs!
