Keynote Speaker: Michael Bonner

MOTIVATION LEADS TO INNOVATION - THE AUDACITY TO GET UP

Let us be honest. The turnover rate within education is a serious dilemma that we have yet to find the antidote for. A study conducted at UCLA showed only 4% of college freshmen were interested in following the path to becoming an educator. The profession of teaching is not an easy one and now the entire world is exposed to this truth. In schools all across the world, creating new and innovative strategies within the classroom is an exciting task but can seem daunting to the teacher who is worn down by the profession. Due to many reasons (negative student behavior, poor scores, etc), the school climate can become toxic and suffocate the life out of teachers which ultimately affects student performance.

In order to shift the school culture, it begins with individual teachers making the decision to change their classroom into an engaging learning environment. Michael Bonner will share how he utilized the power of self-reflection to evaluate his qualities as a teacher, navigating the tumultuous waves of working within a Title 1 school (100% FRL free and reduced lunch), to understanding the value of applying creativity!
