It allows one to lead with optimism resulting in a more connected and committed team, which in turn can lead to greater results. Moreover, research has demonstrated that positive leadership is a means to build a culture that unites in times of change and adversity, both of which educational leaders face with regularity. This training allows leaders to discover key principles and practices that result in positive leadership that not only will make the leader better, but also everyone around them. Leaders will receive knowledge and tools to develop in the following areas: Positive leadership, positive communication, culture building, optimism and cultivating positive beliefs, creating unified and connected teams, empathetic interactions, team building vision clarity, and emotional resilience. Prior to the workshop, leaders will complete an on-line self-assessment. Social workers can earn CEU's, teachers can earn pd hours.

Why do we use them? How do we use them? Are they the only resource we should use? Where do I find decodable texts and how do I evaluate them? Structured vs Balanced Literacy, Orton-Gillingham methods of Phonics, and decodable texts are buzz words heard all around the education community, but how do we best implement these ideas into our daily practice? The direct connection between what students learn phonetically and what they read is key to building strong readers. In this session, we will explore what decodable texts are, why and how we use them, and how to evaluate and choose appropriate texts. This session will provide an adaptable routine of implementing decodable text in classrooms. And in return, teachers will leave with the knowledge and confidence to start these routines and to create an immediate impact on student learning.

All behaviors are communication, including our own. What is your student trying to communicate to you? At this age, students do not have fully developed executive functioning skills of inhibition, impulse control, working memory, social emotional skills or inattention. Their behaviors are the brain's way of trying to regulate what is happening within them as well as what is happening around and to them. Our behavior, in response to a child's behavior, can make the situation better or worse, for both of us. This workshop will teach you how to recognize your own communication as well as those around you. Participants will learn ways to improve their mental health and make the classroom environment a place where every student and adult feels welcome and safe which will in turn create more wanted behaviors from your students.

Our behaviors are the communication of those bits of information. Not just our behaviors, but the behaviors of every person with whom we interact. Every behavior, whether wanted or unwanted, positive or negative, is communicating something. How we respond to that communication will determine the outcome of the conversation. While the executive functioning skills of inhibition, impulse control, working memory, social emotional skills and attention are more developed at this age, there is still much growth happening. There are many other factors at play at this age that also must be taken into consideration when looking at and understanding behavior. This professional development will teach you how to recognize your own communication as well as your middle school students. Participants will learn ways to improve their mental health and make the classroom environment a place where every student and adult feels welcome and safe which will in turn create more wanted behaviors from your students.

You have the opportunity to change a life and make a huge impact on society! You are probably filled with questions though, such as: What is my role as a paraprofessional? What are my duties and assignments? What does “help” look like? What is an IEP? Can I say “No” to a task? Am I an equal member of the education team? Will I be required to write lesson plans, discipline students, speak to parents? What does the teacher want from me? These were the questions I had when I was hired. These are also the questions that many of the paraprofessionals that worked alongside me when I taught had. This workshop will answer those and many more. This was developed after years of being a paraprofessional and even more years of training/working with paraprofessionals and consulting with dozens of teachers and paraprofessionals. While getting the answers to those questions is important, there is also the need for having a toolbox to go to for instructional and behavorial strategies for when you are working 1:1 or in a small group. This workshop will cover that as well. A brainstorming time will be included to talk about situations that you have dealt with in the past or have been told you may deal with in your role this year.

Teach; True Stories of Special Needs Families to Promote Acceptance, Inclusion, and Empathy (1 hour meeting, 1 x a week for 5 weeks ) (K-12) Why would a teacher write a book and make the title from a saying no teacher likes? As teachers we all hate the saying "Those who can do and those who can't teach" right? We hate it because it insinuates that somehow we are less than all the other professions and that we aren't capable. The people in the pages of this book feel that way all the time, too. Each chapter is a different true story of an individual or family who were told, "You can't (be happy, have a fulfilling life, walk, talk, read, write, go to college, etc)" by a medical professional, teacher, school system, family member, friend, etc. and many are still hearing those words every day. These stories are written from the student and/or parent's perspective after many hours of interviews. Shelley Kenow knows each individual in the book and has had the privilege of teaching a few of them. She ends each chapter with what she was taught by knowing the individual, family, or both. You will come away with a changed perspective of a "day in the life" of a child with a disability and their families lives which will likely change the way you teach.
