Afternoon Keynote: “Classroom Leadership: WHY is the Key to Character Education”

Teachers have an intense desire to invest in their students and encourage them to become better people. They want their students to be the best they can be. However, teachers can often get overwhelmed by what they are supposed to do in the classroom and how they are going to get it done. The “what” and the “how” can be all consuming leaving teachers feeling they are not able to make the investment they want to make in their students.

This session will encourage and motivate teachers to remember WHY they got into teaching in the first place. Focusing on the “why” is key to implementing character education in your daily curriculum. Teachers will discover valuable insights, illustrations, and character lesson they can implement immediately.
