Convo is an incredible opportunity to meet, collaborate with and learn from other educators and experts in the field. You will get a chance to listen to and learn from Dave Burgess author of Teach Like a PIRATE: Increase Student Engagement, Boost Your Creativity, and Transform Your Life as an Educator. This is an exciting array of opportunities to increase your knowledge base, and improve yourself as an educator as well as a chance to network with incredibly talented and passionate educators.
I know I’m beyond excited to see what Dave Burgess has to bring to the table as well as all the other amazing speakers and guests we will see at Convocation, I will see you there! If you want to learn more about what is planned, learn more about Literacy Alive, How to support you councilors, there will be a job fair where you can explore the different opportunities in education. This is going to be a packed few days that will alter lives as well as build and change career paths.
