Setting the Stage: Keys for Successful Learning

We all know that student success is greatly enhanced
when we encourage our children to develop a strong set of values,
actively support their learning and constantly improve our teaching practices.


This year’s conference features an exciting array of speakers, each with one of the keys needed to ensure successful learning.

Personal value topics include learning about the nature of discrimination, turning conflict into opportunity, building resilience and learning to do the right thing.

Supporting student topics include attachment theory, adult/child relationships and involving parents in literacy.

Educational practice topics include differentiated instruction and competency based curriculum and assessment.
