Unleashing Your Personal Power
Tuesday, July 21st: Keynote (8:30-10:00)
The amalgamation of decades of research from multiple sources clearly demonstrates that the educator and the instructional leader are the greatest influences on student achievement, and that what we do instructionally supersedes anything a child may come to school with. If we truly choose to own this well-proven and empowering fact, then we must also embrace the notion that educators are indeed infinitely powerful. What if we truly tapped into and released that force? What if we realized what we are truly capable of? In this session, participants will learn about the many benefits to fostering one’s belief in their individual capabilities, suggest possible sources to access and strategies to use to increase their self-efficacy, and receive tools to embed these concepts into their daily practice in order to fully unleash their personal power.
