Reclaiming Our Calling

What would school look like if we held the “whole learner” in the same regard as high-stakes test scores? This keynote is a refreshingly honest and practitioner-friendly message that will help you meet your school’s goals while helping all students connect to their passions. Let’s turn off auto-pilot mode and set our sights on learning that lasts.
