Putting Down What You Are Carrying... & Preparing For The Tasks At Hand!

Our personal troubles, private challenges, and societal crises beyond our control can become baggage over time, and we risk dumping it on others. Putting down the baggage can be scary. It will require us to redefine who we are and what we are capable of becoming. Unresolved issues due to the disruption of the pandemic, unforeseen setbacks, societal unrest, neglected relationships, career failures, illnesses, or huge financial loss may lead to over indulgent and/or other unhealthy behavior in order to mask underlying issues. Our future success depends on our willingness to unpack and put down our baggage. Join Dr. Brown on this remarkable journey of “letting it go and emptying it out.”

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn that once we rid ourselves of the limiting negative thoughts, feelings, judgments, experiences, we can experience fulfillment in our natural state.
  2. Learn that acknowledgement is crucial to unloading these issues and beginning the journey onward.

Doing What's Best for Students...Walking The Talk!™

"Doing what's best for students" is a common phrase tossed around in education often without subsequent clarifying conversations. This master class will explore what it really means in practical terms to do what's best for students with the understanding that we all are fallible human beings. What is “best” for students is rarely a single, narrowly-focused strategy, approach, and/or philosophy. This is a journey that will require all to think beyond the "core curriculum" as well as self-reflect and possibly self-correct. From a developmental perspective, we know what is "best" can and will differ depending on the students' ages, background, community needs, etc. Students are happier, healthier, and better educated when given diverse and multiple opportunities for expression. To accomplish this we must work to nurture the soul as well as the brain. Rich opportunities for a variety of experiences help students become well-rounded adults. Participants will leave WOWED, STUNNED, and TOUCHED! Tears and Cheers will abound!

Learning Objectives

  1. Create a learning environment that supports the delivery of content and wisdom with empathy, care, dignity, respect, relevance, and common sense.

  2. Learning to treat ALL students as if they were the children of your superintendent.

  3. Visualize your student's success.
