Ignite Your S.H.I.N.E. – Be Unstoppable!
Designed to serve as either a keynote or a FUNshop (annihilating the experience of a traditional workshop) where participants will experience professional development like never before! Every child, every teacher, and every person in your school is gifted in their own way. The Ignite Your S.H.I.N.E. experience will teach you how to motivate every individual by finding and fostering these gifts so they can flourish in an environment where there is pride and a belief mindset in their ability and their future. Students do NOT fit into a box of reading, writing, math, and science. Let’s blow up the box by asking, “What box?” Instead, let’s focus on the individual child to discover the answers to who they are, what they love and how we can help them maximize their contribution to our world. Let’s create learning and exploratory environments where students have voice and choice.
Ignite Your S.H.I.N.E.™ is going to spark the passion, creativity and energy of your educators as we apply brain research to dramatically increase student engagement!
