Learning and Justice for All Conference – December 9, 2022

I presented a LIVE Zoom session hosted by the Nevada Association of School Administrators (NASA).

All Means ALL: How Each Atomic Interaction Impacts Relationships
Want to make an impactful and transformative improvement on learning for ALL? It begins with building better relationships by nurturing connections with intention. When we break it down to the smallest units of relationships, we find ourselves at the atomic level. It is from here we build a safe, secure, and supported environment for students to take risks with their learning. The power of your love and impact is limitless and it’s your legacy that lives in them forever.

In this session, you will learn how our atomic interactions can not only make an impact on lives but an imprint on hearts. With three key foundational mindset shifts, you will discover how deepening meaningful relationships leads to improved well-being and greater joy in life so you can be the most effective educational leader who meets the needs of ALL learners. You will walk away with tangible ideas to use immediately in all of your personal and professional relationships in the communities where you belong. Join us on a journey to discover the gifts all around us in our relationships.
