Hit the Ground Running with our Pre-Conference Sessions

We’ve created five exciting half-day sessions on Sunday, June 25, designed to offer teams of leaders and teachers targeted support for transformation in key areas of need. Plus, pre-cons are a great primer for the MSC main event, offering helpful context and focus for the days of professional learning ahead.

Pre-Conference Sessions: Sunday, June 25

  • Increasing Belonging through Positive Relationships with Felicia Heard

    Learn research-based strategies for creating environments where positive relationships drive powerful learning on the topics of relationship building, mental well-being of students and staff, and determining curriculum connections that represent students.

    Best for: elementary and secondary classroom teachers, support staff, special education teachers, and guidance counselors

  • Sustaining a High-Functioning Classroom with Leah LeComte

    Explore how to create a learning environment with strategies for transitioning from one activity to the next, setting clear goals, managing effectively, and applying key culturally responsive practices.

    Best for: elementary and secondary classroom teachers and classroom support staff

  • Come Together! Student-Centered Culture Ensures Success with Dr. Adam Drummond

    We throw around the word "culture" so easily in today's educational system. We hear, “Oh this is a good culture!” or “I wish our culture was better!” But what does culture mean? Join Adam Drummond in examining a sure-fire plan to develop a student-centered school with zero dollars and practical methods that are based in neuroscience and can be used immediately. Network, collaborate, and gain the know-how to positively create a student-centered culture that inspires people to come together.

    Best for: building-level leaders (principals, assistant principals) and aspiring leaders

  • Equity-Based Leadership with Dr. Joshua P. Starr

    When district reforms are conceived with social justice in mind, schools move toward fulfilling the long-standing promise of equitable education in America. Effective collaboration among superintendents, central-office leaders, school board members, and stakeholders is imperative for school and student success. This experience provides multiple entry points for executing on equity-based leadership, considering resource allocation according to vision and need, applying a system of talent management for retaining great educators, using data insights to drive decision-making, and understanding the levers of positive school system culture.

    Best for: superintendents, cabinet members, central office leaders, school board members, and principals

  • Embracing Personalized Learning with Eric Sheninger

    Shift your thinking from "what" to "who" to emphasize personal ownership of learning through relevant contexts and applications. Explore blended strategies and examples of personalized learning with and without technology in any classroom.

    Best for: superintendents, assistant superintendents, principals, assistant principals, teachers, and support staff

I learned more than I thought possible. So many ideas and perceptions matched my own and I wish more teachers could hear these messages. Thank you again.
